Vegan Feta Cheese With Tofu
There are a few ways you can make your own vegan feta cheese recipe but I chose to use tofu for mine. It’s white like feta cheese, it has a really similar texture and it is really great at soaking up all the flavors you add to it. You can also cube it up or crumble it to mimic the look of real feta cheese.
What I love about feta cheese is that it has a really nice tangy flavor to it. It is a cheese, so it adds a creaminess to your recipe as well as a nice acidity to break things up. If you want a more mild vegan feta cheese you can either use less vinegar and lemon juice or just leave it in the marinade for less time.
