Mediterranean Herbed Feta from the Non-Dairy Evolution Cookbook by Chef Skye (The Gentle Chef)Chef Skye Michael Conroy kindly gave his recipe to the Veggie Fest team. This and other delicious cheese recipes can be found on the website www.thegentlechef.com or in his cookbook, Non-Dairy Evolution Cookbook: A Modernist Culinary Approach to Plant-Based, Dairy Free Foods. Chef Conroy explains: “This tofu-based cheese is simple to make and is reminiscent of dairy feta cheese in both taste and texture. It has a very tangy, salty flavor and is wonderful for topping Mediterranean salads, pizza, or for using in recipes such as Greek Spanakopita.” A food processor is recommended for efficient processing. You will also need a silicone, glass, ceramic, metal or BPA-free plastic container that will hold a minimum of 2 cups liquid to act as a form to shape the cheese. Line the form with plastic wrap, leaving plenty of excess hanging over the sides. This will help lift the cheese from the form after firming. This recipe yields about 8 ounces.
