Vegan Tofu Feta Cheese


tofu feta in italian salad bowl
This tofu feta packs a flavorful punch and adds a nice thick and chewy texture to your salads, pasta, Caprese kebabs, or whatever you want to add it to. Pressed medium-to-firm tofu is marinated overnight in a medley of spices, vinegar, and miso or vegetable stock. The leftover marinade can be used as a delicious Italian dressing or sauce. Skip the oil and use extra vinegar or water for an oil-free version.

My Story

I was a little skeptical when I heard of tofu feta thinking it wasn't possible to make tofu taste so tangy and delicious. Boy, was I wrong! This tastes better the longer you marinate it. I found a few recipes and adapted them to my taste. This is a go-to recipe that I enjoy regularly. It's simple and delicious and pairs well with so many different dishes. I often even eat it on its own, too.
