Vegan Feta Tangy Bites
The texture and taste of vegan feta tangy bites are reminiscent of feta and queso fresco from the past and can be used in the same dishes with similar taste results.
Primarily I add these vegan feta tangy bites to salads as pictured above on the “Romaine Salad Boats.” Vegan feta also makes a garnish to noodle dishes, soups, grain and rice pilafs and stir-fried vegetables. On spicy dishes like the chile bean chile, it fills in perfectly for queso fresco. It’s actually better, as it has a citrus taste.
Sprouted soybean tofu has a perfect texture for making the vegan feta tangy bites, but regular or firm organic tofu works fine too. Sprouted tofu can be found in the refrigerated section at your local coop stores and some general grocery stores carry it too in the refrigerated section with other Asian ingredients. Organic tofu is the preferred choice since that ensures the soybeans are not GMO. Stored in a glass container, the vegan feta tangy bites will last in your refrigerator for up to 5 days. Be sure to date the container.
