Avocado Tofu Feta Cheese Hoagie

There are cheeses and there are cheeses even when you are vegan as you can see here and here. The former post is my favorite, vegan Parmesan, and the latter is the vegan version of cheese you would use for burritos and such.  This time in this post I have adapted a recipe for Vegan Tofu Feta Cheese from the Simple Vegan Blog .

The result is a tangy version with a close texture to the real thing. It does fulfill my craving in terms of something close in feel in my mouth to feta cheese. The taste is satisfactory and good but not close to the real thing but it does enhance a salad or a hoagie as in this recipe. It is loaded with flavor from the spices and herb used and is still worth having when you are hankering for feta cheese. It is easy to make and gets better with time.
