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.

That’s it friends! Let me know – where would you use this? Eat up and enjoy!!

    I tried another recipe for Tofu Feta last weekend which used large amounts of apple cider vinegar and it was sooooo gross. Wish I had found your recipe earlier 🙁

    Hello,

    What kind of tofu is best for this?

    thanks

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hi Carmen thanks so much for reading! Extra firm or firm tofu works perfectly for this dish. NOT silken tofu. I hope this helps!

    What kind of ‘nutritional yeast’? Does it matter if it is instant or active dry?
