It’s now springtime for many people around the world. And, while the weather is still a bit on the wintery side, many of us are seeking out some vegan spring recipes to bring in the new season. This plant-based vegetable and feta pie is a great one to try.

A few years ago, the idea of having feta in a vegan pie would have seemed impossible. But this BOSH! recipe uses a range of plant-based ingredients to create a realistic-tasting cheese pie alternative that’s sure to impress any guests.

One of these ingredients is silken tofu. Silken tofu, also known as soft tofu, is a variety of tofu characterized by its smooth, creamy texture and high moisture content. Unlike firm or extra-firm tofu, which is pressed to remove water and has a denser texture, silken tofu is not pressed, resulting in a softer consistency. The filling also calls for plant-based cream, nutritional yeast, and dijon mustard, all of which work together to give it a delicious creamy and cheesy taste.

This pie also features plant-based burrata and parmesan, both of which you should be able to find at larger health food stores and some supermarkets.

Spring vegetables

One of the pie’s key ingredients is asparagus, which is now in season. Spring is the perfect time to eat asparagus, and it should be plentiful and easy to find at your local store.

Asparagus is a nutrient-rich vegetable that offers a multitude of health benefits, making it a good addition to any diet. It’s an excellent source of essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, C, E, and K, as well as folate.
