Honestly, I could describe to you the perfect brine that has over and over. But you really have to try this to believe it. Get ready to put this vegan tofu feta cheese on every single thing!!!
So I was SO skeptical about this. I saw the idea to use tofu and went from there. Honestly, I was sure it wouldn’t work. I was SHOCKED at how beautifully brine-y and just how much this mimicked that flavour that feta cheese gives you. After several tries, I got the level of flavour that matched what I used to have in Greek salads, and I can say friends that I am duly satisfied.
There isn’t much to say except the ingredients are all key. Also, the longer this marinades, the better it tastes. You can do the tofu in small blocks if you want, or crumble it like I do, depending on how you like your feta cheese.
Either cut your tofu into small cubes or crumbled like crumbled feta and place in a bowl.
In a mason jar (or any large ish jar with a top) mix the nutritional yeast, pepper, sea salt, lime juice and olive oil. Shake until combined. Pour over the tofu in the bowl and gently stir with a spoon to come to coat all of the tofu. Add the tofu back to the mason jar and pour any excess brine still in the bowl over the top.
Let it marinade for at least an hour, preferably over night. Taste and you can add more lime juice if you want it more brine-y. Enjoy!
