I haven't been eating breakfast lately, nothing sounds good. I decided to search on Pinterest and found a few casseroles. I'm craving green chili casserole, but every recipe uses egg. I can veganize everything but the egg. I know how to substitute in baking, but not in this. I don't want to have to order a substitute online, I need a substitute I can get at the grocery store.
I was thinking about mixing silken tofu with soy milk or something like that. Would it work in this?
Replacing that many eggs is asking a lot even with tofu. Maybe a thick cashew cream that would semi-solidify during baking would approach the consistency of the dish but if it was me, I'd prepare all the other ingredients and stir them into polenta. Then let it set, and broil the top. Yumm.
That casserole looks like a frittata to me. You could probably get a successful result using Chef Chloe's End-of-summer Fritatta as a model but using the veg from the casserole adjusting quantities and seasoning as necessary. Chloe uses silken tofu and corn starch to mimic the binding (and other) properties of eggs in egg-based frittatas.
jpaul's polenta idea sounds tasty. It would be much more to my tastes, but of course YMMV.

Here's a breakfast meal I keep intending to make! Another egg free egg dish, but using chickpea flour instead of tofu to replace the egg - this has green chille in (you might want to increase the amount), I reckon you could easily sub courgettes for the mushrooms. Don't know what it would be like baked, it's cooked in a pan on the hob:
