Dinner for one? Clay pot rice is a customizable, filling option packed with flavor

1 12 1

Cooking for yourself can sometimes feel like one of the most difficult, energy-draining tasks. A majority of recipes yield multiple servings, plus it may not feel entirely worth it to spend hours on a meal that you quickly finish on your own.

Luckily, there's a perfect dish for one, which also happens to be one of my favorites: clay pot rice.

Clay pot rice is a signature dish in Hong Kong, which is almost endlessly riffable (some food historians estimate that there are more than 20-plus traditional flavors of Cantonese clay pot rice) depending on your ingredient preferences. Popular add-ins include boiled and sliced chicken, braised duck, Chinese sausage, spareribs, mushrooms and other vegetables.

The result is comforting and flavorful, as well as perfect for a party of one.
