In my non vegan days anari was my go to cheese and of course hallumi when I wanted to have something more densed in taste and texture.
Grilled hallumi in pitta with tomatoes, parsley and onions...so simple, so tasty...
Today’s post is about a plant- based alternative to hallumi. I don’t usually try to find plant based alternatives to match my pass carnivore days 😆 but I had to try this one! I guess I am missing home a little bit too much 😅
My photo is not inspiring I know so let’s pretend we have that piece of tofu hallumi on a bed of juicy beef tomatoes with some olive oil and black olives! 🍅
And if you are not convinced yet, let me just mention that this version of hallumi has half the calories and fat of the actual hallumi 😳and less salt
1. Press the tofu
2. Marinate for an hour
3. Then grill it for a few minutes
. 1 block of firm tofu
. 4 Tbls nutritional yeast
. 2 Tbls lemon juice
. 1 Tbls dried mint
.1 Tbls olive oil
.1/2 tsp salt
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-4 days!
