On a recent culinary adventure, I stumbled upon a delightful fusion of Mediterranean and Indian flavors that inspired me to create this No-Bread Brunch Bliss recipe. As a lover of all things brunch, I was ecstatic to find a dish that combines the best of both worlds while keeping it vegan and bread-free!
Introducing the No-Bread Brunch Bliss, a Mediterranean Indian recipe that serves four people and is perfect for those looking for healthy breakfast ideas or avoiding gluten. This tofu chickpea scramble is bursting with flavor and nutrients, making it an ideal choice for anyone seeking a satisfying and nutritious start to their day.
The star ingredients in this dish include 1 cup cooked chickpeas, 1 cup crumbled firm tofu, and an array of colorful vegetables like onion, bell pepper, and tomato. Aromatic spices such as cumin seeds, ground turmeric, ground coriander, paprika, and freshly ground black pepper bring warmth and depth to the tofu chickpea breakfast. The pièce de résistance is the tangy tomato chutney topping made with mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida (hing), dried red chilies, and curry leaves. These ingredients come together beautifully to create a symphony of flavors in your mouth.
To prepare this healthy breadless brunch masterpiece, start by chopping your vegetables using a chef’s knife and cutting board. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat before adding cumin seeds until fragrant. Cook onions until translucent before adding bell peppers. Stir in crumbled tofu, cooked chickpeas along with the spices into the skillet; cook for another 5 minutes while stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Fold in chopped tomato and cilantro; remove from heat and set aside. For the tomato chutney recipe: In a medium saucepan heat olive oil over medium heat; add mustard seeds followed by cumin seeds, asafoetida (hing), broken dried red chilies, and curry leaves. Cook onions until translucent before adding tomatoes and salt to taste. Simmer tomato chutney for about 15-20 minutes or until thickened.
Serve your No-Bread Brunch Bliss by placing the tofu-chickpea mixture on plates and topping each serving with the spiced tomato chutney. This Mediterranean Indian fusion dish is perfect for those seeking savory vegan breakfast ideas or gluten-free brunch recipes.
