To-“feta” Vegan Feta

Feta cheese is the signature ingredient in Greek salad and tops many Greek dishes.  This vegan version is tasty in salads or crumbled on top of your favorite dish and it’s really easy to make.

12 oz organic firm tofu
½ cup organic lemon juice
½ cup purified water
2 tsp salt
2 tsp Greek oregano

Cut tofu into 1 inch cubes and place in bowl. Mix remaining ingredients together to make a spiced brine and pour over tofu. Make sure all tofu is completely soaking in the brine and place lid on bowl. Cover for a minimum of two hours. The longer the tofu soaks, the more flavor it gets. Salt will settle on the bottom, so stir it up a bit before serving.  Serve strained cubes on salad or crumble on pizza or other dishes.  Cubes can soak in brine in covered bowl in refrigerator for up to a week.

  1. I have to try this. Do you use a press for your tofu. If so what kind?

    I use the extra firm tofu and I do gently squeeze out a little of the moisture, but I don’t really press it. I think it would absorb more if it were pressed though.
