Tofu Feta

This feta is marinated in herbs and vinegar to give it a tangy, cheesy flavour. It’s super easy to make and the longer it marinates the better it tastes.

You can use Tamari (gluten – free soy sauce) instead of the apple cider vinegar for a more Asian type of flavour. It will also change the colour a little bit. You can also add in some red pepper flakes, garlic, sea salt, nutritional yeast whatever your palate craves, the options are endless. Creativity is key!

I love using tofu feta in salads, in my bowl food or just as a healthy snack.

Tofu Feta

Vegan, Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free


400g GMO free tofu

1 Tbsp dried oregano

1 Tbsp dried basil

1 tsp Himalayan salts and black pepper

1/2 cup olive oil

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar (with mother)

2 Tbsp lemon juice


Remove excess water in the tofu. I like to do this by placing a clean kitchen cloth onto a plate, placing the tofu on- top of the cloth into the plate. Wrapping the cloth around the top part of the tofu and pressing another plate on- top of that. It should drain within 20-30 minutes.

Cut the tofu into cubes. Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a bowl, add the tofu and mix well.

Pour the mixture into a glass jar for at least 2-3 hours before eating.

I like to marinate mine overnight for the best taste the following day.


  • You can add more salt if it’s not salty enough for you.
  • The tofu feta will last in your fridge for up to 2 weeks.
