I love making tofu feta on a Friday afternoon, and letting in marinate in the fridge overnight for a yummy snack on a Saturday or Sunday. I serve the tofu feta with fresh tomatoes and sliced basil, and its like a healthy caprese salad! This marinated tofu is surprisingly flavorful, and will please even tofu haters. If I have any extra from the weekend I like to throw it on a lunch salad for Monday afternoons.

How Do I Make Vegan Feta Cheese?

  1. Press your tofu – get as much moisture out of the tofu as possible, this press does the trick perfectly!
  2. Cube the pressed tofu into bite sized pieces. In a shallow baking dish or bowl, mix in the rest of the ingredients until the tofu is covered in the marinade.*
  3. Allow the tofu to marinate overnight for 8 hours minimum, up to 2 days maximum.
  4. Serve in any dish you would use tofu in: Tofu Feta Caprese Salad, a vegan cheese board, on toast, or crumble on a salad.

*You can also leave your tofu in the whole block, or crumble it.  I prefer cubes, but any texture would work.

    Could I marinate the tofu block whole? Just wondering for the baked “feta” pasta as it looks like you bake the whole block together. Thanks!!

    • The Herbeevore

      Hi Audrey – absolutely! Just make sure you use a small enough container to the marinate completely covers the block and you should be all set! Let me know how it works out.
