Wanted yo try but why use oats?!
All I taste is onion.
Used coconut milk and ancho chili powder. Accidentally used whole can of milk. 13 oz instead of 8. Had to add 11/2 tsp of more Celtic Grey salt. 1/4 of ancho. And a pinch more smoked paprika. Overall, nice smoky flavor. Tasty. I have to make again with correct ratios.
How can you pressure cook this with no added liquid?
Oats are not included in the original recipe, in book. I’ve made this without them and advise against it. I did add 3/4 cup of water to pot before cooking, and a can of coconut milk before blending. It added a slight sweetness and cut the bite of the chipotle. Very good.
Very quick and easy when you have a butternut squash sitting around and don’t feel like cooking!
Here are my changes:
I use 1 small onion and saute both onion and about 3 garlic cloves in olive oil first. I don’t measure my squash just use a medium shape seeded and roughly cut into pieces. I never use oats, not sure why its necessary, I presume to thicken it out but instead I would add a sweet potatoe (or regular) I do add ground ginger, cayenne pepper, black pepper and sometimes thyme.
