One block away from my office is a By Chloe franchise. If you’re not familiar, it’s a vegan chain that seems to be taking over the world. Chances are, if you’re not near one now you will be soon. It has tons of great dishes, but one of my favorites is the Greek salad. I’m a sucker for these as it is, but By Chloe’s is fantastic. In addition to throwing chickpeas into the mix, By Chloe tops it off with herbed tofu feta. I’m not sure exactly what kind of marinade it has, but I love it so much that it inspired me to make my own for some upcoming recipes.
My herbed tofu feta is pretty simple; it’s no-bake and has only six ingredients total. It’s different than the delicious recipe at By Chloe, but the flavors are pretty awesome. It’s very versatile, too. In addition to using this as a topping on a salad, you can keep a batch in the fridge and use it as the main protein in any number of dishes. It can play a supporting role or be the star. That’s pretty awesome.
