Congee, also known as jook in China and chao in Vietnam, is one of the world's most comforting dishes. It has a mild flavour, but when served with condiments it can be as tasty as your palate demands. Top it with a couple of seared scallops for a little bit of luxe.
Note Salted black beans are available in jars from Asian grocers.
