Spiced Pumpkin and Pecan Congee

Congee - or breakfast porridge - provides comforting warmth and the ability to keep us full throughout the morning. Add next-level, sweet goodness with a combination of spiced pumpkin or butternut squash to add tender texture, chewy chopped dates to bring the instant sweetness and toasted pecans to impart a nutty crunch. Drizzle with maple syrup and dig on in.
