Shanghai Vegetable & Ham Rice

Prep: 45 mins

Cook: 15 mins

Warming, delicate and light - this one pot vegetable & salted ham rice dish is deliciously comforting

  • 210g jasmine rice

  • 230ml water

  • 30g salted cured pork (diced Chinese ham or pancetta)

  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger

  • 4 bunches of bok choy/ choi sum (225g, washed and finely chopped)

  • Salt and pepper for seasoning

  • Soak the jasmine rice for 45 minutes.

  • Finely chop the veg and roughly chop the ginger into large slices. While you are chopping the veg, place the pancetta in a pan on a low heat to render out the fat. Once that is cooked, tip the pancetta and the fat into a clay pot. With the residual fat in the pan, add the ginger and saute for a few mins before adding the rest of the greens. Wait for them to wilt.

  • Once your rice has soaked for 45 mins, pour it all into the clay pot. Mix the rice and pork. Bring the clay pot up to a boil, then simmer on the lowest setting for 8 mins. Once the rice is steamed, mix in the greens. Season with a pinch of white pepper. Serve!
