 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           long-grain white rice
      1/4  cup           glutinous rice
    8 1/2  cups          cold water
                         --x--
    1      large         bok choy -- head separated
                         -(into white stalks and leaves)
    1 1/2  teaspoons     salt -- or more
    2      teaspoons     soy sauce, low sodium
           pinch         white pepper
    1      slice         fresh ginger -- to taste
    1      teaspoon      scallion oil -- (peanut oil
                         infused with green onions)
 
 Place both kinds of rice in a large pot. Wash rice under water 3 times,
 rubbing between hands then draining each time.
 
 Return rice to pot, add water, cover and bring to boil. Leave lid open a
 crack. Reduce heat tomedium-low and cook for 1 to 1 1/2 hours stirring
 occasionally to prevent rice from sticking to bottom of pot. Cook until
 rice thickens almost to consistency of porridge.
 
 As rice is cooking, wash bok choy stalks and leaves. Cut leaves into
 1/4-by-4-inch slices, and stalks into 1/4-inch pieces. 
 
 About 7 minutes before rice is completely cooked, add bok choy stalks,
 salt, soy sauce, pepper and ginger. Mix together thoroughly and bring
 congee to boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, add bok choy leaves and
 cook for 2 to 3 minutes longer. Turn off heat, then add scallion oil and
 stir well into mixture. Serve hot. 4 to 6 servings.
