Masala Chai Squash Porridge (paleo + vegan)

Masala Chai Squash Porridge #paleo #vegan #glutenfree

Paleo porridge made with roasted butternut squash and masala chai milk. Also safe for gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan eating styles.

I went (primarily) grain-free a couple of months ago in an attempt to reduce bloating and digestive issues.

Living grain-free requires creativity.

A sweet potato is no longer a sweet potato, it’s a bun.

A leaf of lettuce is no longer for a salad, it’s a guacamole scoop.

A butternut squash isn’t just soup… it also makes a great base for porridge!

This recipe is one that just about everyone in your life can enjoy no matter their food allergies, sensitivities or eating style.

Because I believe that it is possible for women to live a liberated life on a restricted diet.

So, preheat your oven, grab a squash, and let’s get making some porridge… masala chai style.

  1. Had this for breakfast this morning and just had to leave a gushy comment! I went grain-free 5 months ago to save my digestive system. It feels so good to be pain-free after over a year of thinking I would never feel normal again. My morning meal looks the same as my afternoon and evening meals–lots of veggies and a protein. This recipe was just what i needed! Our mornings have been unusually cold, and I’ve been missing hot bowls of creamy oatmeal with milk and cinnamon.
    Fairly sure this porridge beats oatmeal! So delicious and perfect for cold mornings. Thank you!

  2. Hey Leanne,

    Do you think your issues were solved by going grain free?

    PS That looks super yummy! I’ll have to try it out sometime!

    • Some of my issues, for sure! I’m loving my grain-free eating style! WAY less bloating, too!

    • Hey Sophie – I’m not 100% anything lol. I still eat quinoa now and again… and I have potato starch in a couple of things. I would say that I’m maybe 80% paleo? I enjoy gluten-free naan when we go for Indian food, and have chickpeas once in awhile… you know, just follow what my body wants!
