Roasted Garlic Achaar Tofu Scramble

Does anyone else feel like they have a love/hate relationship with tofu scramble? Often the singular vegan option on brunch menus, a well-prepared tofu scramble can be so good while the not-so-well-prepared ones can be incredibly bland, perpetuating tofu’s flavorless reputation.

For brunch this past weekend I wanted to go all out with a tofu scramble, roasted potatoes and biscuits. I decided to up the flavor level in the tofu scramble by adding Brooklyn Delhi’s Roasted Garlic Achaar- one of the goodies I received in my Farm to People package (remember this post?). The achaar (an indian relish traditionally eaten with rice or curry) is so flavorful and tasty that it was a one-stop-shop for seasoning the scramble. I was especially excited to open the container and discover whole cloves of garlic mixed in.

I’m happy to report that today’s Roasted Garlic Achaar Tofu Scramble gives tofu a good name! I’ll definitely be making this recipe for future brunch guests and I’m eager to try the other flavors of achaar that Brooklyn Delhi has to offer!

I served the scramble with roasted potatoes (tossed with olive oil, baked at 425° for 40 minutes), avocado slices and gluten-free biscuits.
