Posts Tagged ‘tofu feta cheese’

This vegan greek salad takes a little bit of planning but is so worth it!  Marinate the tofu the night before and it will be ready for lunch the next day.  It is surprisingly similar to feta cheese. Even our non-vegan friends marvelled at the resemblance!  This is a very loose recipe and can easily be tailored to your own preferences.

Ingredients:

1 block of firm pressed tofu (the brand i used had two blocks in one package-i only used one)

1/4 cup of olive oil

1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon sea salt

2 cups cherry tomatoes (or chopped big tomatoes…i used cherry because they were fresh from my garden!)

1 field cucumber, chopped

1 orange pepper, chopped

1/2 cup of mixed olives

2 cloves of minced garlic

1 tablespoon each of fresh oregano, basil and parsley or whatever other herbs you love

Pinch of chili flakes

Pinch of sea salt

Black pepper

Cut the tofu into little cubes and marinate in the olive oil, apple cider vinegar and 1 teaspoon of sea salt.  Make sure to toss it around really well and then cover and let it sit in fridge for 8-10 hours. The oil will solidify.  No worries though. Bring it out of the fridge about 30 minutes before you’re ready to use it to bring it to room temperature.  Mix all the veggies together in a large bowl.  Drain the tofu and add it and the seasonings, stir it up and enjoy!  I found I didn’t need to add any more oil, but of course add a splash if you like.  This makes enough for two meal size servings or 3-4 as a side.
