Making vegan cheeses is easier than it seems; it is a matter of trying new recipes and customising them to our liking. 

This healthy vegan feta cheese (fat & cholesterol free) is delicious and has a flavour and texture similar to the original; it is also straightforward to prepare. It is healthier, it has hardly any fat, and it has no cholesterol.

As a substitute for cheese, I have used firm tofu. In case you have never used tofu in the kitchen, it usually comes in a package with water, so you have to press it to release as much liquid as possible. 

What I do is wrap it in a kitchen towel (you can also use napkins or kitchen paper, but it is less ecological) and put some weight on it like a tetra brick with a table or plate underneath or a heavy book. I leave it like that for at least 30 minutes.

The recipe is straightforward; you have to cut the tofu into cubes, prepare the dressing by mixing the ingredients and leave the tofu marinating. The longer you leave it, the more flavour it will have.

I have tried several different dressings, which I like the most, but you can experiment and try other ingredients. For example, I use apple cider vinegar, although you can use other vinegar without problems.

I have also seen recipes with soy sauce or miso, with different proportions of water, lemon and vinegar, or even some use only lemon or only vinegar; there are endless combinations! 

You can use other spices, but I like simple recipes, and oregano is delicious; you don't need anything else.

To marinate the tofu, I recommend that you do it in a container with a lid and that you store it in the refrigerator or refrigerator for at least 2 hours, although it begins to have more flavour after 2 or 3 days. 

I have read that when it has more flavour after 1 or 2 weeks, I have never had it that long because I am afraid that the tofu will spoil.

If you like your feta more crumbly, you can mash it with the help of a fork, the flavour does not change, but you may enjoy the texture more. I like it both ways, so I don't complicate my life and leave it to the dice.

As I like this healthy vegan feta cheese (fat & cholesterol free) the most, it is in a salad, and my favourite is Greek; it is very refreshing, especially now that it is hot and the recipe is straightforward.
