Hobak Beombeok (Korean Squash, Sweet Potato, and Bean Porridge)

This warming Korean porridge is a celebration of fall produce, and is loaded with winter squash, chestnuts, sweet potatoes, jujubes, and beans. The squash traditionally used is a large, old one called neulgeun hobak in Korean, but it can be difficult to find; butternut squash works well as a substitute. The porridge is delicious served hot on a winter day, but it can also be eaten at room temperature, and is equally flexible in terms of when it’s eaten: it makes a great breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack. Plus, it just happens to be vegan.
