Homemade Vegan Feta Cheese
Ingredients
1 1/4 cup vegan yogurt (I used coconut, Greek style)
4 Tablespoon coconut flour (or other gluten free flours) 
2 teaspoons vinegar (white or apple) or lemon juice
2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 teaspoons herbs of your choosing
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Directions

Place all your ingredients In a bowl and stir and/or whisk together to combine everything well.


Prepare a container and line it with plastic wrap or wax paper. 

Take your now combined mixture and place it into the lined container. You want this container to hold the mixture and to be able to spread it out as smooth as possible.

Place mixture in the freezer until the vegan feta is frozen solid.

Once frozen, Remove the container from the freezer and remove the liner. Place it onto a cutting board.


Now catefully slice the almost frozen block into cubes. 




Transfer your cubes into a freezer safe container and freeze the vegan feta cubes until you are ready to use them. When you are ready to use them, take out your portion and let them defrost prior to eating for a few minutes. When ready, add to your favorite dishes and enjoy!
