Description

An easy and delicious vegan feta cheese that is made out of tofu and will make all of your dreams come true. This cheese can be swapped for its nonvegan counterpart and the possibilities for serving it are endless!


Ingredients

  • 1 package of extra firm tofu
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons vegan white miso (we use Miso Master)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil*
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano*
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. Press the tofu for at least 1 hour and cut into small cubes.
  2. Mix all of the marinade ingredients together in a large bowl or a container, add the tofu, mix until uniform. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight. It will taste better the longer it sits!

Notes

  • If the cheese is not salty enough for you, feel free to add some salt to taste.
  • You can opt for just oregano or just basil, depending on your preference and/or ingredient availability.
  • Will last 3-4 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • Prep Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

  1. Megan says:

    Do you think freezing and thawing tofu to remove excess moisture instead of pressing would completely change the outcome of the texture and flavour in this recipe?
    Thanks 🙂

  2. Carly Sears says:

    Is there a way to make this oil-free?

  3. Celia says:

    Hey guys, just wondering what brand of white miso you buy and where you get it from. I haven’t found it yet where I live. Thanks!

  4. Julia Miralles Rodríguez says:

    Looks amazing! but.. are you meant to eat it just raw like that? do you boil it it before marinating it? I am just starting to cook tofu so I don’t have much experience with it…

    • Yes, you don’t need to cook it. This is great because it is nice and marinated and a “treated” by the acid of the lemon and vinegar. Plain tofu straight up out of the container isn’t the best IMO haha!

  5. Victoria P says:

    Is the miso necessary? Its not something I normally have on hand.

    • Chris Petrellese says:

      Hey Victoria,

      We haven’t tested it without miso, but other people have, and said it will work but does need some additional salt. Hope this helps!
