If you’ve never had marinated tofu or feta before, buckle up! This is one of my favourite quick and flavourful go-to’s, and brings the most delicious saltiness and depth of flavour to my favourite Mediterranean recipes. You can make this using tofu or feta, making this recipe vegan-friendly!
Delicious, creamy chunks of feta marinated with olive oil, chilli, garlic and onion. What could be better? This recipe is absolutely delicious served as part of a meze platter or as an appetiser all on its own. Try it in salads, wraps, pitas, the sky is the limit!
This simple and delicious recipe comes together in 5 minutes and needs only 7 basic ingredients! This recipe will make 1-2 jars of marinated tofu or feta, and will last a few days in the fridge – that is if you can control the urge to scoff the whole jar for that long! I am absolutely addicted to this recipe and love it just as much prepared with tofu as with feta.
Make sure to use nice and creamy feta – rather avoid crumbly feta for this recipe, as it is unfortunately too dry and won’t absorb the luscious olive oil and lemon mixture in the same way. For tofu, err on the firmer side, as it will suck up the flavours beautifully.
This recipe pairs amazingly with other Mediterranean dishes. If you’re in need of some extra inspiration, make sure to check out some of my other recipes and get cooking!
