Description

Tofu Feta (Vegan Feta Cheese) is easy to make using cubed tofu and an herbaceous Greek-style brine. It’s soft and crumbly just like real feta and bursting with classic Mediterranean flavors. Use it after a few hours on salads, in wraps, and more!


Ingredients

  • 14 to 16 oz extra firm tofu or firm tofu, pressed

  • 1/3 cup distilled white vinegar

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 

  • 3 tablespoons white miso, I use shiro miso

  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh garlic, packed

  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon italian seasoning (or use more oregano)

  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt (not powder)

  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill

  • Pinch of cracked black pepper

For a little heat add in some red Chili pepper flakes 1/2 teaspoon or so (love it)


Instructions

  1. Make marinade: Whisk all the tofu marinade ingredients in a bowl

  2. Marinate tofu: Pour the marinade over the tofu so it is all coated. Cover and refrigerate tofu for at least 12 hours, preferably longer for best briny flavor -24 to 48 hrs

  3. Serve and Enjoy! Enjoy in a salad, wrap, pita, etc,.. or toss with olives as a delicious appetizer. For photos, tips, suggestions and more see above post and notes section.

Notes

For tofu feta with olives: once tofu is marinated (12 hours), toss with a cup of pitted black or Kalamata olives and a cup of green olives (pimento or garlic stuffed) and the marinade. Serve as an appetizer with sliced baguette, crackers, etc,.. Really delicious! (recommend adding red pepper flakes for this)

To store: Keeps in sealed container for up to a week in fridge.
