Steps to make Greek Millet with Tofu Feta


Combine tofu marinade


In a sealable bag or glass dish, combine 1 pound of tofu cubes, ¼ cup of coconut vinegar, 1½ teaspoons of dried oregano and ¼ teaspoon of sea salt to generously coat all of the cubes or seal the bag and gently shake to mix everything together.




Refrigerate for about 2 hours or overnight, to marinate and absorb all the flavor.


Prepare millet


Over a stove, in a medium pot of 2 cups of boiling water, add 1 cup of millet then cover, reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes until all the water has been absorbed. If cooking the millet in an Instant Pot, on high setting, combine 1 cup millet and 1 ¾ cups of water, cover, and cook for 10 minutes then release the pressure naturally. Transfer the cooked millet to a large salad bowl to cool completely.


Add salad ingredients


Add pint of cherry tomato halves, 1 chopped cucumber, ½ sliced red onion, and ½ cup of Kalamata olives along with the prepared marinated tofu.


Prepare dressing


In a small bowl, whisk ¼ cup of red wine vinegar, ¼ cup of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of oregano, 1 teaspoon of basil, and salt and pepper until completely combined. Pour over the salad with the cooked millet and toss to coat and combine everything.



Enjoy immediately or cover and refrigerate until serving.

This was really good but honestly going to avoid raw tomatoes next time cause the juice just gets in it and makes everything taste like tomatoes :(

Does anyone know where I can get kalamata olives here in Czech? I'm visiting it for a month and not sure where to find them so I used normal olives instead.

Made this for my family and they really enjoyed it now everyone is going to do a different cultured food once every week when we meet up.
