- 1 cup vegan yogurt or sour cream
- 1/2 cup seedless cucumber, chopped
- 2 tbsps chopped dill
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 tsps lemon juice
- 1/2 cup homage tofu feta

- 3 1/2 tbsp vegan Follow Your Heart egg powder
- 1 cup almond milk

- 1 large clove garlic, minced

- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 cup Panko (additional for coating)
- 1/2 cup chopped kalamata olives
- Salt/pepper as needed
- Tofu Feta: Press the firm tofu to remove excess water. Use paper towels or paper towels with a weight on top to assist in the process. Cut the tofu into cubes. For the marinade mix all other ingredients in container add the cubed tofu, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and ideally 3-5 days. Tofu will take more texturized form and resemble feta cheese more.The longer it sits the better it will taste! My first batch sat in the fridge for nearly 5
- Cucumber Dill Feta Sauce: Slightly drain and crumble the tofu feta cubes, Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl, set aside in the fridge to chill until ready to serve.
- Fritters: Combine the almond milk or water with the vegan egg powder. Prep all the veggies making sure they are all evenly chopped. (I missed part of a shallot lol) Throw everything in a large bowl, mash, and combine all the ingredients. Be sure to not mash all of the beans so that they hold their shape. Coat the outside with a little extra Panko.
- In a skillet over medium heat, add a little oil and cook on each side for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with the dill feta sauce and enjoy! ( garnished my with a dill sprig and a little red onion)
