Share some yum!

Today’s National Celiac Awareness Month recipe comes to you from Veg News magazine. Veg News magazine, for those of you who are unfamiliar with it, is a fantastic monthly magazine that is full of all things vegan and vegetarian. It has everything from recipes and product features, to spotlights on compassionate beauty products and articles all about well-known vegans and vegetarians. This month’s issue was devoted to amazing vegan Greek dishes and we were giddy to see a recipe for vegan, gluten-free herbed feta. This mock feta is made from extra-firm tofu and is seasoned with basil and oregano. As the recipe says, the longer you let the mock feta sit in its brine, the better it will taste!
