two 10oz boxes frozen chopped spinach
8oz fresh shiitake mushrooms, discard the stem and slice (or 10 dried ones
soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes, drained and then sliced. Discard the
stem. It's tough.)
1 pound frozen tofu, thawed and cubed
6 cups vegt broth
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 Tb grated fresh ginger
1 tsp 5-spice powder
1-2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 cup of very soft cooked brown rice
2 egg whites

Throw everything together  in a large pot (except the egg whites) and cook
until onions are tender and porridge is fragrant, about 30-45 minutes. Then
beat the egg whites  (if using) with a little water and pour slowly into the
porridge. Stir gently into the porridge and serve.
