This super easy and delicious vegan feta cheese recipe requires no complicated ingredients and it takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. This feta cheese is made out of tofu and is a great addition to many delicious recipes.


  • 200 grams (7 ounces) (extra) firm tofu
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) water
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) lemon- or lime juice
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp dried basil*
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano or parsley*
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme*
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, cut in big chunks or 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt**
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper


Press or squeeze the tofu and cut into small cubes.

Add all of the marinade ingredients together in a mixing bowl or a glass container with the tofu. Combine until the tofu is very well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. The feta will taste better the longer it sits.


*You can use fresh herbs instead of dried herbs. I normally use then a little handful. Feel free to adjust to your taste. Also, you  can opt to use only oregano, basil or thyme. I sometimes use dried parsley instead of oregano.  This depends on your preference.

**If the cheese is not salty enough for you, add more salt to taste.

You can keep the vegan feta about a week in the fridge in a glass container with a lid.
