Sunergia Vegan Feta

by Valerie on February 28, 2010 · 4 comments

 One of my favorite discoveries at Pangea Vegan Store was Sunergia Feta.  It is tofu-based and denser than actual feta, but has the same salty briny flavor. My favorite is the Mediterranean Feta, but I have also bought the Tomato Basil flavor.  I love that both are very low-fat and have a short ingredient list.  Initially I was using Sunergia Feta to top salads, but one night I decided to throw it on pizza, just to see.  While compared to Daiya cheese, it is not melty, Sunergia does hold its own in flavor.  Below, you can see Tomato Basil Sunergia feta on the left, and Daiya on the right – while the Tomato Basil did not melt like the Daiya, it got warm and a little gooey, giving the pizza a nice feta flavor.  While you can easily make tofu-based feta, it is nice to have the option to buy Sunergia’s – I especially like the fact it is manufactured in Virginia, making it almost a local product for me.

We go through lots of feta in this house, between my frequent Mediterranean dishes and my four year old's favorite afternoon snack consisting of the cheese.

I have never seen soy feta. I do eat quite a bit of soy and I hope to try this some time!

Thanks for mentioning it.

oh, I'm excited you shared this. I was just reading a friends yummy orzo salad recipe, but was going to take out the feta. This would be perfect, right? Some kalamata olives, parsley, lemon juice and tomatoes…oh, and cucumbers? Delicoius! Thanks, Doll!
