Why We Love This Recipe

Crumble it on a salad, add it to a mezze platter, use it as a pizza topping, tuck it into a pita with falafel—there are so many possibilities for this tangy, salty vegan version of feta.

Servings: 10 servings


  • 1 block 1 pound, or 454 g extra-firm tofu, drained and pressed to remove any extra water
  • 3 tablespoons 45 ml apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons 45 ml Kalamata or other olive juice (from a jar of olives packed in water,not oil)
  • 6 tablespoons 90 ml lemon juice
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons 10 to 15 g salt


  • The night before, freeze the pressed tofu overnight in a freezer-safe plastic bag.
  • The next day, let the frozen tofu thaw for about 4 hours, and then press it again to remove any moisture. Crumble into ½-inch (1.3 cm) chunks into a medium bowl. In a separate small bowl,
  • whisk together the vinegar, olive juice, lemon juice, and 2 teaspoons (10 g) of the salt.
  • Drizzle the mixture over the tofu and stir to combine. Let rest in the fridge for 1 hour, stir again, and let rest 1 hour longer. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon (5 g) salt, if using. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
