Rice, rice, rice... even for breakfast

Talking about food in Taiwan wouldn't be complete without talking about rice. Here in Taiwan there's rice for breakfast, but prepared a bit differently. The rice from the day before is cooked with more water to make a water porridge called muay. (Some people know it by the Cantonese name, jook.) Sometimes vegetables and meat is thrown in for more flavor. In essence it's the same concept as oatmeal: a grain cooked with a lot of liquid for breakfast. Quick energy + hydration for the morning. Anyway, besides the nutrition science, it's quite tasty!
