Squash scramble is a delicious SCD legal and low FODMAP breakfast.

Yet another squash-centred recipe… this time for a low FODMAP grain free breakfast. The scramble tastes best with butternut, but some low FODMAPpers may have trouble with it (I don’t). As an alternative, try pumpkin or delicata squash.

Squash Scramble with Banana-Coconut Creme

(yield: 1 portion, preparation:10 minutes, total time: 20 minutes)

  • 2/3 cup roasted squash (delicata, pumpkin or butternut)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter or other fat
  • 1 /2 tablespoon sugar – optional
  • 1/2 cup coconut banana crème  or other topping

The total prep time for this recipe does not include roasting the squash, as I always have a stock of that in the freezer, or making the coconut banana crème. In general, I only make this scramble when I do have the latter on hand, but I’ve also made it with butter-fried banana as a replacement and it was delicious. Provided you have both the sqash and your topping of choice, this recipe is very quick and simple.

Beat the squash, egg, cinnamon and vanilla with a hand-held mixer until frothy and the pieces of squash have disintegrated. Heat up the fat in a small frying pan over low heat, carefully pour in the batter and leave until the bottom part sets.

Flip this semi-pankcake in portions, so that you get chunks of scramble crisped up on the outside, but fluffy on the inside.

Continue frying until the outside of the chunks turns dry, serve immediately with your topping of choice and fresh fruit. Sweet decadence…
