This recipe was inspired by Neal Fraser’s old roommate, a vegetarian who scrambled tofu for breakfast. Fraser liked the idea of putting a completely vegetarian, egg-free scramble on his menu. This silky mix of mushrooms, potatoes, roasted bell peppers and tofu is topped with brightly flavored pesto sauce.

  1. 1/2 pound fingerling potatoes, scrubbed
  2. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 5 ounces oyster mushrooms, thickly sliced
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 1 pound firm tofu—drained, patted dry and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  6. One 12-ounce jar roasted red bell peppers, drained and thinly sliced
  7. 3 ounces mozzarella-style soy cheese, coarsely shredded (1/2 cup)
  8. 2 tablespoons prepared pesto
  1. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook over moderately high heat until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and slice the potatoes crosswise 3/4 inch thick.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the potato slices and cook over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 6 minutes. Add the tofu and roasted red peppers and season lightly with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring and lightly mashing the tofu, until the ingredients are combined and heated through, about 5 minutes. Add the soy cheese and 1 tablespoon of the pesto and stir to melt the cheese. Transfer the scramble to a platter and drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon of pesto and serve.
Serve With Crusty bread.
