1/4 cup water
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Vegan Feta Cheese 2
1 pound extra-firm tofu
2 tbsp water
4 tsp yellow miso paste
¼ cup red wine vinegar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt
2 tsp basil, dried
1 tsp oregano or majarom, dried
¼ tsp rosemary, dried
2 tbsp nutritional yeast

Break tofu apart into a few large pieces in a mixing bowl and set aside. Whisk all remaining ingredients, except nutritional yeast together. Pour over tofu and mix with your hands, crumbing the tofu into smaller pieces as you go. Set aside and let rest for 10 minutes. Sprinkle 1 tbsp of nutritional yeast over top and mix. Taste, adding more nutritional yeast if desired.

Place the first set of ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer over medium heat, uncovered, for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain and place in a bowl. Whisk together the second set of ingredients until well blended. Pour over the tofu and toss gently. Cover and chill several hours, stirring occasionally to ensure the tofu cubes are evenly coated by the marinade. Store in the fridge (it keeps for a week or more), and drain before using.
