Vegan Feta (Tastes Just Like The ‘Real’ Thing!) Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 15 mins

Ingredients

1 cup (150g) Raw Cashews*

8oz (~220g) Firm Tofu

1/4 cup (60ml) Water

5 Tbsp Lemon Juice

1 Tbsp White Vinegar

2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast

2 and 1/2 tsp Salt

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Onion Powder

1 cup (240ml) Water

1 Tbsp Agar Agar Powder*

1/2 tsp Dried Oregano

1/2 tsp Dried Dill

Instructions

1Add the raw cashews, firm tofu, 1/4 cup water, lemon juice, white vinegar, nutritional yeast, salt, garlic powder and onion powder to the blender and blend. It will be thick. Set aside.

2Prepare a loaf pan or square dish by spraying with non-stick spray. Set aside.

3Add one cup of water and a tablespoon of agar agar powder to a saucepan and bring to the boil stirring constantly. When it starts boiling, set a timer and let it boil (while you continue to stir) for 1 minute.

4Moving very quickly, as the agar starts to set up fast, pour out the agar/water mix into the blender with the other ingredients and blend in quickly. Then, again very quickly, pour this out into your prepared loaf pan.

5Smooth it down and then place into the fridge and leave it to set.

6Once the feta cheese has set, loosen the sides with a knife and tip it out onto a wooden board.

7Cut it into slices and then cut the slices into cubes.

8Place the cubes into a bowl with a lid, add the dried oregano and dried dill (optional) and then put on the lid and rotate the bowl so that all the pieces of feta get evenly covered.

9Now your vegan feta is ready to serve.

10Keep it stored in the fridge and enjoy within about a week. It is also freezer friendly if you think you may not finish it within a week.
