I decided to make my favorite Cornmeal Porridge Recipe in my Instant Pot and I couldn’t believe how simple and easy it was. In minutes,

I had the most delicious, creamy cornmeal porridge!  I didn’t have to worry about my porridge boiling over the sides of the pot cr messing up the stove.

Didn’t have to worry about the pot bottom burning and messing up the flavor.

What peace of mind! With just little effort to stir the porridge and bring it to a boil then cover, set the functions and time, that’s basically it.

    In all the years I’ve been making cornmeal porridge I never thought to try adding coconut but I can imagine it is a very nice touch. The photo helps with the imagining too. I can’t wait to try it; thanks a bunch for the idea!

      Dunori, please let me know how you like it. I find that coconut milk gives a creamier result and if you love the taste of coconut then you are in for a treat.
