I love my big bowls of morning porridge. I get so excited when I try a new recipe and it works. I’ve been on a chocolate kick lately. Not a rich dark chocolate sorta deal, I just love the slight bitter flavor of cacao in my otherwise sweet food. This recipe was definitely inspired by my Chocolate-Zucchini Porridge, but with the incredible kaboucha squash that I discovered in the freezer section of Trader Joe’s. I’d been wanting to experiment with squash in my smoothies/ breakfast bowls, and just hadn’t had the time to cut and roast a whole squash. This find was an awesome solution. (On this note, I’ve seen chopped butternut squash in the freezer section of Whole Foods and Wegmans if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you). This Creamy Kaboucha Porridge turned out so creamy and filling. I loved the sweet, natural flavors from the syrup and banana, countered by the slightly bitter cacao and bland, but warm, kaboucha squash. Give this recipe a try one of these mornings and let me know what you think!
