This vegan tofu feta cheese is packed with delicious Greek spices that make it taste close to the real thing! With just 5 minutes of prep time, this dairy-free feta is an easy way to get your cheese fix without the cheese. 


  • 2 tablespoons dried basil
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano 
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced 
  • Zest of 1 lemon 
  • 1 teaspoon salt  
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil 
  • 1/2 block extra firm tofu (7oz)


  1. To a large jar or container* add the basil, oregano, nutritional yeast, minced garlic, lemon zest, and salt. Give it a stir, then pour in the lemon juice and olive oil. Mix until incorporated. 
  2. Roughly crumble the tofu with your hands and add it to the container with the spices and oil. Stir to evenly coat the tofu with spices. 
  3.  Pop it in in the fridge for at least 3 hours (or overnight for best results) so the tofu can absorb all the wonderful spices! This tofu feta will last about 1 week in the fridge. 


* I use a container that holds 3 cups for this recipe.
