Vegan Feta Cheese (That Tastes Just Like Feta)


This vegan feta cheese recipe tastes just like feta cheese and is perfect on top of a Greek salad. It’s made with 4 simple ingredients and requires minimal effort to make.

Simply press the excess water out of extra-firm tofu, cube it, marinate it, and it’s done. How easy is that?

Vegan Feta Ingredients

  • Tofu: Extra-firm tofu gives us a feta cheese texture with minimal effort. Simply dice and marinate. Even better, if you can find it, use fermented tofu (which is even firmer and my personal favorite). When buying tofu, always choose organic tofu to avoid GMOs.
  • Lemon Juice: Lemon juice provides the tang that is characteristic of fermented foods like cheese. It also provides a Vitamin C boost and a plethora of phytonutrients and antioxidants which support clear, glowing skin from within.
  • Oregano: Oregano does more than give this tofu flavor. It’s a surprisingly antioxidant-rich spice that has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. Just a pinch packs a punch.

  • First, press the tofu: Lay out a clean kitchen towel, wrap up tofu in it and put a heavy book on top for 30 minutes.*
  • Next, combine lemon juice, oregano, and salt in a shallow container and mix well.
  • Once the tofu is done being pressed, slice it into cube-sized pieces and add to the container with marinade. Then close the container with a lid, shake it up and let it sit for at least an hour. The longer, the better.
  • Serve over greek salad or any salad of choice.

Recipe Notes

* This step is key to press out excess water so the tofu absorbs the maximum amount of the marinade.
