Laba Porridge, also known as "Seven-ingredient Five-flavor Porridge", "Buddha Porridge" and "Potluck Porridge", is a kind of porridge made from various ingredients. It was first recorded in the Song Dynasty. Wu Zimu, in the Southern Song Dynasty, wrote in his book “Meng Liang Lu” that, "On the 8th of this month, temples such as Dasha provided five-flavor porridge called Laba Porridge." Laba Porridge has a history of more than 1000 years in China. According to the tradition, on Laba Day, government officials, monks in temples, and ordinary people would all make Laba Porridge. During the Qing Dynasty, drinking Laba Porridge became even more popular.
