Preparation

  1. Press water out of tofu. Place tofu between two paper towels and put something heavy on top. Let it sit for at least an hour.
  2. Prepare marinade. Whisk together every ingredient in a bowl until nice and even.
  3. Cut tofu into small cubes and add to a jar or an air-tight container. Add marinade and mix well together. Place jar in fridge and let tofu marinade for at least 2 hours.

Notes

Marinade the tofu feta for 8-48 hours for the best result. After marinading keep the tofu covered with olive oil in the fridge in an air-tight jar to preserve it for 2-3 weeks. Add fresh herbs, chili, black peppercorns and garlic cloves for an extra fancy version.
