A great Mediterranean-inspired vegetarian meal that combines the earthy taste of mushrooms with fresh tomatoes and silky tofu.


  • 14 ounces extra-firm tofu, preferably water-packed
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced mushrooms (4 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons prepared pesto
  • 2 tablespoons prepared pesto


  1. Rinse off the tofu and blot dry with paper towels. Slice the tofu and then crumble each slice into pieces.
  2. In a large sauté pan, heat the oil over high heat and sauté the tofu for 5 minutes, without stirring.
  3. Continue to cook the tofu for an additional 6 minutes until golden brown, stirring occasionally to ensure even cooking.
  4. Stir in the tomatoes and mushrooms and cook the mixture for 2 minutes.
  5. Remove the pan from heat and add the feta and the pesto. Stir until well combined and then serve immediately.
