Tofu Feta - Vegan Month of Food



Poesy and Plate
 
Vegan Month of Food  2014
(check out the hundreds of VeganMoFo blogs HERE) 
My goal: cook and blog about vegan food 20 times
during the month of September. 

My theme: words and food




"It  is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife."

'A+'  for the day if you know what classic novel this comes from.  I will give you a hint..... it was written by Jane Austen in 1813.



I love simple things like this straightforward statement written so long ago and this EXCELLENT tofu feta. I could eat these little clouds of lemony goodness all day long!  Alas, most guests at my recent cocktail party went for the dairy feta pictured near  my YUMMY tofu feta, which simply meant more for me! Once the tofu is gone, use the dressing over lettuce. 

A note: this tofu feta in no way tastes like the feta made with goat or sheep milk, BUT it's still great! Eat it straight or put it in salads. Eat it with tiny cocktail toothpicks or with your fingers. Serve it in a cute fish bowl or in an old tupperware. Be polite and eat one at a time or stuff your mouth full. All good. 

Here's what you need:
14 ounces extra firm tofu, sliced in 3/4 inch slabs. 
4 T fresh lemon juice
lemon zest
1/4 t salt
1/2 t dried oregano
3 T olive oil

Here's what you do:
Blot the tofu slabs for a few minutes to remove any excess water. Carefully cut into 3/4 inch cubes. Mix the dressing and pour over tofu. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes, stirring once in a while. YUM!

  2. I can't seem to eat tofu without cooking it first, not sure why? Looking at this though I think I should give it another try, it looks so tasty :o)

    1. I know what you mean about eating uncooked tofu...maybe the lemon marinade takes away some of the 'raw' feeling of this,,,,,whatever, it's great! Try it!

  3. Ooh I can't wait to try this! I've been craving a yummy Greek salad from my pre-vegan days but I haven't been sure how to recreate the feta flavor. This looks perfect!
