tofu feta

This tasty vegan pasta salad featuring roasted peppers, fresh tomatoes, and tofu “feta”  is great for parties, potlucks and barbecues. 

Serves: 6

  • 8 to 10 ounces rotini or fusilli (use a flavored variety such as tomato-basil, if desired)
  • 6-ounce jar roasted red peppers, with liquid
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons white balsamic or white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 recipe tofu “feta”
  • 1 cup steamed fresh or frozen green peas
  • 2 medium firm, ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley, to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cook the pasta in plenty of rapidly simmering water until al dente. Drain and rinse until cool, then drain well again.

Meanwhile, drain the liquid from the red peppers into a small bowl. Combine it with the oil, vinegar, and oregano, and stir together to make the dressing. Thinly slice the red peppers.

Combine the cooked pasta in a large serving bowl with the red pepper strips, “feta,” peas, tomatoes, scallions, and parsley. Pour in the dressing and toss well. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and toss again. Cover and refrigerate until needed, or serve at once.

    Mary, most jarred roasted peppers are not packed in oil. Check the label if that’s a concern for you!
