spiced congee with a zucchini "bread" twist

Late summer always brings an abundance of zucchinis, and in my past life as a gluten-eater, lots of wholesome zucchini baked goods would result. Having a slice of fresh zucchini bread or a tasty muffin with my morning coffee was the ultimate way to start the day.

In my current gluten-free, sugar-free, caffeine-free existence, zucchini bread and coffee just doesn't fit in the picture so well.

So, I made something close that does: spiced congee with a zucchini 'bread' twist

In my bowl I mixed together the following:
Congee (a ginger/anise/orange spiced wild rice, brown rice, sweet brown rice blend)
flax seed
flax seed oil
ginger and cinnamon
finely chopped zucchini

I threw the whole thing in the microwave until the zucchini softened. Yum! It was delicious! I threw on a little roasted laver, because I love laver endlessly. It would be amazing with walnuts or pecans too... It was the perfect midmorning snack at work. And close enough to the flavor of zucchini bread to satisfy.
