We recently visited the West Midlands Vegan Festival and got to try out some great new products. One of our favourites was this “Better Fetter” vegan feta cheese from Lettices. This is one of the best vegan cheeses we’ve tried – read on to find out exactly what we thought.
The texture of this cheese was really authentic, unlike some other vegan greek-style cheeses which can be too solid. It was nice and crumbly, but still held up when cut into cubes. Keeping it in the fridge for a few hours before using made it firmer, but we preferred the crumbly style.
We weren’t expecting this to melt well, but it did! When mixed into warm pasta, it went really nice and soft, just like real feta would. We think it would be great on pizzas or in stuffed peppers.
We loved the taste of this cheese. It was really close to real feta – maybe even a little tastier! The flavour was nice and salty, with plenty of seasoning from garlic and herbs. It could get overwhelming if you ate too much at once, but tasted great in all the dishes we tried. We’d give 10/10 on taste.
This cheese is tofu-based, and contains pretty simple ingredients, which we’ve pasted here from Lettice’s website:
Ingredients: Firm Pressed Cauldron Tofu (Filtered Water, Soya Beans, Calcium Sulphate), Coconut Oil, White Wine Vinegar, Dried Italian Herb Seasoning – Sesame Seeds, Sea Salt, Basil, Thyme, Oregano, White Pepper, Onion, Rosemary, Garlic Powder – Vegan Lactic Acid Powder, Salt, Onion Powder.
If you come across Lettices at any vegan events, we’d definitely recommend giving this cheese a go. You can see a list of the events they’re scheduled to be at on their site, and there’s also a page for online orders, although these seem to be on hold currently. As well as a range of cheeses, they sell a few different vegan meats. We also purchased a tasty Camembert spread – review coming soon.
