We love love love delicata squash around here.
The porridge? My kids love it, and I think you will too! Throw a few things in the Instant Pot, including a whole, uncut delicata squash, and with only about 5 minutes’ labor you have a beautiful, wholesome porridge. This recipe is AIP compliant as well as GAPS-friendly, but serve it to anyone who loves porridge. It’s delicious and naturally sweet!
The slippery elm is optional, as it’s not compliant for those just starting out on the AIP Diet. Otherwise, I recommend it. Here’s why. Also, I show nuts (below) as a topping on the porridge. Of course, AIP folks aren’t going to use those. But have fun with the toppings, based on your restrictions: coconut, fresh or frozen berries, sliced banana etc.
One afternoon my 15-year-old daughter said to me as she ate this recipe chilled as pudding, “Mom, this pudding you made is soo good.”
Then I happily overheard this between my teenage kids. I was in the bathroom listening, unbeknownst to them, while my daughter continued to eat the leftover porridge cold as pudding:
Son: Isn’t that stuff so delicious?
Daughter: Mmm, so good.
🙂 (My son ate the porridge hot that morning for breakfast.) So I recommend the loveliness not only as hot porridge, but I pour it into 8 oz. canning jars for lunches and snacks.
By the way, this is the Instant Pot I use.
