Homemade Vegan Tofu Halloumi Cheese Recipe

Homemade Vegan Tofu Halloumi Cheese Recipe Recipe

By Peanut Palate

🔪Prep Time: 10 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 15 mins


¼ block extra-firm tofu

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1½ tsp fresh lemon juice

1½ tsp extra-virgin olive oil

¼ tsp white miso paste

½ tsp dried thyme

¼ tsp dried oregano

⅛ tsp pink salt


1Mix together all ingredients, except the tofu, in a small bowl.

2Unwrap the tofu and wrap it in a kitchen towel or paper towels.

3Place a few books on top of the tofu block. Make sure they aren't too heavy or the tofu will crumble.

4Leave this for at least 30 minutes, in order to press additional water out of the tofu.

5After the tofu has been pressed, unwrap from the towel and cut into medium-thick rectangles, like they are in the photos.

6Place the tofu in a shallow bowl. Use a pastry brush to brush the oil mixture onto the tofu.

7Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour to absorb the flavors into the tofu.

8Once the tofu has been marinated for at least an hour, turn on a medium-sized skillet over medium-low heat.

9Drizzle a little bit of olive oil into the pan, then evenly place the tofu pieces into the skillet.

10Cook the tofu for a few minutes on each side, until browned. Use a rubber spatula to flip each piece over.

11Once the tofu is browned, it is ready to eat. Enjoy with pita bread, roasted vegetables, crackers, salad or your favorite way to enjoy halloumi!
