Congee is an Asian rice porridge that is very comforting and easy to digest. This low-FODMAP recipe uses plenty of fresh ginger and chicken breasts to create a nourishing stew-like meal that can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It is an excellent meal to serve a new mom during the postpartum period. My recipe requires an Instant Pot (which makes preparation very quick and easy!)—if you do not have an Instant Pot, use a 4-quart pot and cover and simmer on low heat for at least an hour, or until the chicken easily falls apart.

1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh ginger
4 green onions chopped
2 medium parsnips peeled and chopped
4 medium carrots peeled and chopped
1 pounds boneless chicken breasts
1 cups white jasmine rice rinsed well
6 cups water (or chicken stock)
1 teaspoons sea salt
1 cups chopped cilantro


2 green onions chopped
