Vegan Greek salad with tofu feta cheese
I came up with a similar recipe for vegan Greek salad previously but this is the second and improved version and I was so happy about how it turned out. The feta cheese is made using marinated firm tofu. All you have to do is to leave in in a simple marinade for at least an hour for it to take on the rich flavours. And the rest is just about chopping some veggies. A super easy, refreshing recipe that's full of protein and flavour.

Greek salad has always been one of my favourite salads in summer and now I made a vegan version of it.
Just marinade tofu that was cut into cubes and leave it in the fridge for at least an hour. You can squeeze the water out of the tofu first with a tofu press like the one from Tofuture to help the tofu absorb the marinade even quicker.
Bon appetite or Καλή όρεξη as they say in Greece (according to Google translate at least ;-)
Tofu feta cheese ingredients:
- 200g firm tofu
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 30ml apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast (nooch)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp oregano
- Chopped tomatoes
- Chopped green pepper
- Chopped cucumber
- Finely sliced red onions
- Sliced kalamata olives
- Apple cider vinegar
- Extra virgin olive oil
Cut 200g of firm tofu into small cubes - if you want you can even squeeze the water out first using a tofu press like the one by Tofuture. The smaller the cubes the better so they can absorb the flavours better and it will reduce the time the tofu needs to marinate.
Transfer the tofu into a container and add all other ingredients. Shake well and leave in the fridge for at least an hour to marinade.
In the meantime chop the veggies (tomatoes, green pepper, cucumber) and finely slice some red onion and kalamata olives (you can use other dark olives as well but these olives taste the best).
Add the veggies to a bowl, then add the marinated tofu feta, a spritz of apple cider vinegar, a dash of olive oil, salt to taste and some more oregano.
Mix well and serve.
