ABOUT THE RECIPE:
This Jazzy Vegan Feta recipe is very easy and it tastes authentic. Marinating the tofu in a lively combination of Mediterranean-style herbs and spices makes delightful vegan “cheese.” This Vegan “Feta” is updated with the yummy addition of mellow white miso paste, which kicks the flavor of the “feta” up a notch. Even if you’re not a fan of tofu, you’ll appreciate this tasty twist on a classic cheese.
8 ounces firm or extra-firm regular tofu, well-drained
1 ½ to 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus more as needed
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning blend
1 teaspoon mellow white miso (optional)
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon salt, plus more as needed
Put the tofu in a medium-sized bowl. Using your fingers or a fork, crumble the tofu until it resembles the texture of feta cheese. Add the lemon juice, oil, Italian seasoning, optional miso, garlic powder and salt. Gently stir to combine. Add more lemon juice or olive oil to taste, as desired. Cover and refrigerate a minimum of 2 hours and up to 12 hours.
