Course: Appetizer

Ingredients
Vegan Feta Cheese
  • 1 Block Extra firm tofu
  • Salt to sprinkle on the tofu
  • 1 Tbsp. Oregano
  • 1 tsp. Basil
  • 1/4 C. Lemon juice
  • 1/2 C. Apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 C. Water
  • 2 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Salt
For the Bites
  • 2 C. Watermelon, cubed
  • 1/4 C. Mint, fresh
  • Balsamic reduction(optional)
  • Small skewers
Instructions
  1. Make the vegan feta first. Cube the tofu and lay the cubes on paper towels. Place more paper towels on top and put something heavy on top to press out some of the liquid. Let sit for at least 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, place the tofu cubes onto a sheet pan sprayed with non stick spray in a single layer and sprinkle with salt. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes to dry out the tofu more and make it firmer.

  3. Once the tofu is done, in a medium sized bowl combine all the other feta ingredients and whisk to combine. Add the tofu and stir making sure all the tofu is coated and soaking in the liquid. Marinate in the fridge for at least 3 hours, I like to leave mine over night. 

  4. When you are ready to serve your bites, place a piece of watermelon on a small skewer, then a few mint leaves, then a piece of vegan feta. Repeat as many times as you want. Serve with a balsamic reduction if desired. 

Recipe Notes

The bites can be made a bit ahead of time for a party and kept in the fridge.
