Easy Tofu Feta "Cheese" (aka Better Feta)

The trick to eating healthy meals is to prepare as much as you can in advance. For instance, this marinated Easy Tofu Feta “Cheese” (aka Better Feta) makes a great addition to your salads, grain bowls and other main dishes, and can easily be made ahead of time in about 10 minutes total. A friend of mine typically adds herbs and other ingredients to her feta to give it a superior pop of delicious flavour, hence the name Better Feta. In this recipe, you’ll marinate the tofu cubes in rice vinegar, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, olive oil, dried oregano, garlic powder and pink Himalayan salt. I usually let the tofu marinate in the refrigerator for 3 hours or overnight but if you’re in a pinch for time, 30 minutes should suffice. One important note! Personally, I believe it’s best to always buy organic tofu.  The reason for this is that soybeans are one of the most genetically modified crops grown in North America. All organic soy is required to be non-GMO. My biggest issue with GMO products is that there is not enough research completed confirming what the long-term health effects of consuming GMO products are. It’s not a gamble I’m risking to take. I hope you’ll enjoy this recipe!
