Butternut Squash Porridge

Yvonne Briggs


This porridge is great to warm up in the morning for a quick and easy delicious breakfast. If you are grain free and missing oatmeal this is a great alternative. You can top it with whatever you fancy. Some suggestions are shredded coconut, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, or sliced tigernuts.
