I love to use this vegan tofu feta cheese in salads, or as a yummy salty cheese dip! It’s so easy to make vegan cheese at home. And it's salty and textured just like you'd expect of any awesome feta.
Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Greek
Serves: 1
  • 3 cups raw cashews, soaked overnight, drained and rinsed well
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup kalamata olive juice
  • 4-6tbs olive oil
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp Himalayan rock salt
  • Coconut oil, for cooking
  1. Blend all of your ingredients in a high-speed blender or food processor until smooth and creamy.
  2. Hang a nut mylk bag or cheesecloth over a wide mouth jar, bowl or colander and pour in your cheese mixture.
  3. Form some sort of ball shape and secure your bag, or cloth with an elastic band.
  4. Let the ball shaped mixture drain over your bowl overnight. This will promote fermentation.
  5. You can consume it as is or...
  6. A day later, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  7. Grease up a pan with coconut oil and place the cheese ball on it.
  8. Drizzle some coconut oil over the top of your ball before baking it for about 45 minutes or until the ball is firm and golden.
  9. Remove from the oven and cool.
  10. After it is cool you are able to crumble it like feta.
  11. Use this vegan feta in spanakopita, salads or with crackers as a wonderful salty treat!!
