Tofu Feta and Beet Salad

To go with my dinner, I often make Greek salads with baby cucumbers, grape tomatoes, black olives, and vegan feta cheese. There are some great recipes out there on how to make feta out of extra firm tofu marinated in brine with lemon juice and herbs, but sometimes I simply soak the tofu in olive juice. I find that this gives it that same feta-like flavour and saves a bit of time, too.

I happened to have some beets lying around, so I tried adding them into my salad this time. I also mixed the tofu feta in with a bit of beet juice, and it came out with this beautiful pink colour 🙂

    1. Oh wow, I didn’t even know that cashews could be used for feta! I thought tofu was the only way to go. Very cool — I’ll have to look that one up!
