Tangy and Creamy Homemade Whipped Feta Cheese
We are big fans of feta cheese. It’s bright and tangy with a delicious dry consistency. However, then we discovered whipped feta cheese!
This whipped version has all of the flavor but it also has a luscious texture. Additionally, it’s super easy to make. Simply throw everything into a food processor or blender and BOOM- you have epic creaminess with tons of herbalicious flavor.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- Bread – Toasty bread is the perfect base for a smooth cheese spread and tender tomatoes.
- Garlic – Rubbing a clove of garlic on toasted bread takes it to another level.
- Vegan Feta Cheese – Tart and tasty, vegan feta whips up to a great spread for toast.
- Tofu – Soft tofu blended into the feta adds protein to this delicious spread.
- Lemon Juice – The juice from 1/2 a lemon provides extra tanginess to the whipped feta.
- Tomato – Late summer tomatoes are the centerpiece of this toast.
- Fresh Basil – Fragrant fresh basil is another summer delicacy that is wonderful on this bright meal.
FAQ & Vegan Herby Whipped Feta and Tomato Toast Tips:
What bread should I use for this recipe?
- We love to use whole wheat sourdough for this toast, but anything from pumpernickel to baguette slices will work for this recipe.
What if I can’t find vegan feta cheese?
- Unfortunately, the feta is a key ingredient for this recipe and switching it out will be challenging. However, if you are in a bind, you could also try using vegan cream cheese instead. Although you may wish to add more lemon to give the “cheese” a little more tanginess.
What should I serve with this toast?
- Although this toast is great on its own, for a complete meal we like to serve it alongside a fresh garden salad.
Tip: Use a high quality tomato
- Don’t skimp on the tomato for this recipe! We recommend using an heirloom tomato or another in season variety. Trust us, your taste buds will thank you.
Tip: Remove the oil for a healthier toast
- Although we love the rich flavor of the whipped feta when olive oil is used, you can opt to replace it with an equal amount of water for a healthier option.
It’s Toast Time!
Enjoy every last juicy bite of each tomato you just couldn’t resist buying from the farmers market. 🍅 It will truly shine over the creamy and herby whipped feta. Cheers!
