Not-feta salad! It’s vegan!!!

Not-feta salad! πŸ™‚ It’s vegan!!! πŸ™‚

I’m so busy and don’t have time to write much but I just HAD to share this with you! This is just amazing! When I was on the plane to Istanbul last month the girl I sat next to shared this great tip with me πŸ™‚ (I know! …Β how amazing that she had vegan tips)! What do you do? Press some firm tofu to extract the water, cube it into chunks, whisk up a marinade and leave it covered overnight (if you can wait that long)! This doesn’t need to go in the fridge as that would cause the olive oil to harden – leave somewhere not too warm though whilst marinating! and enjoy! πŸ™‚ Once it’s done marinating you can store in the fridge and just let it come to room temperature before eating (or not)! πŸ™‚ You can of course mix up the spices but the base of my version of this fantasticΒ recipe is:

  • 220g firm tofu (pressed to remove liquid makes around 200g)
  • 3 teaspoons fresh lemon Juice
  • 35ml olive oil (can be reduced if necessary)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic (don’t be generous unless you love garlic!)
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2-3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (can be eliminated if necessary)
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

Add it to salads, put it in a wrap, try it on pizza, have it with pasta… SO many yummy ideas with this one! πŸ™‚ I know I said I didn’t have time to party for the next few weeks months! but I want to share this with Angie at her Fiesta Friday and also at the plant based Potluck Party πŸ™‚

  1. Sounds a great way to get some tasty flavors into some tofu (which I’m afraid for me is generally needed!) And then it becomes a nice versatile ingredient with a great flavor (and you can use it in my empanadas!). Thanks for sharing with Fiesta Friday.

    • Hello Caroline πŸ™‚ It’s definitely going in your empanadas! πŸ™‚ Thank you! πŸ™‚ Yes, tofu is one of those things which needs flavour adding to it – this is perfect for that as I would never have dreamt of eating tofu without cooking it!

  2. I love the versatility of tofu. You can literally put it in any dish and prepare it in every way! I used to love eating feta prepared and marinated like this, but for some weird reason, it never occurred to me to try this with tofu! It must be super yummy! πŸ™‚

    • Hello Tracy and welcome to Life Diet Health πŸ™‚ I need lots of things… Pinterest being one of them! Time is another thing I need but am seriously lacking for a few months! 😦 This is quick and easy though and interesting in a fantastic way (I’d never have thought to try it), let me know how you get on with it. Thank you!
