Vegan stuffed dates plated

Let’s make one of the easiest and best snacks ever. Easy vegan stuffed dates! Filled with herb-loaded vegan feta, they are just delicious. While there are so many amazing things you can fill dates with, vegan feta and herbs are definitely some of my favourites. If you don’t feel like a savory filling, give these tahini stuffed dates a look.

The contrast in flavours makes them so delicious! The dates are sweet and have a bite to them, while the feta cheese is creamy and soft and almost explodes in your mouth when biting into the date. The walnut gives a satisfying crunch and flavour that pairs amazingly with dates. The sweetness from the date goes well with the light spiciness of black pepper and fresh garlic in the vegan feta cheese. The flat-leaf parsley rounds everything off. These dates only take a few minutes to prepare, and they are insanely satisfying to eat. I like to serve them as part of a meze or to snack on them just like they are. Their taste won’t get boring. 

Ingredients for Vegan Feta Stuffed Dates: 

Ingredients for stuffed dates
  • Medjool dates 
  • Vegan feta substitute 
  • Garlic
  • Salt & pepper
  • Water

You can try other sorts of dates as well for this recipe. I like to use Medjool dates. They work perfectly because of their size, texture, and sweetness!

As a vegan feta substitute, I am using a store-bought one from VioLife. It is convenient and works great for this recipe. If you cannot get your hands on it, you can also try other brands. I will share my own recipe for how to make vegan feta cheese sometime in the future! When you have these ingredients on hand, let’s dive into the stuffed date recipe! 

Vegan Stuffed Dates Recipe: 

It’s so easy. Let’s get our dates, give them a slice lengthwise, and take their seeds out.

Next, we want to prepare our vegan cheese filling. Put your vegan feta cheese substitute into a bowl, and add the garlic to it. We want the garlic to be as fine as possible. I would recommend using a garlic press or a grate for it, so its flavour infuses the vegan feta cheese nicely. Next, wash the parsley, and strip down its leaves. Cut the leaves finely, and add them to the vegan feta cheese substitute. Add some salt and pepper.

Now, I like to add a sip of water (approximately two tablespoons) and mix the ingredients to create a creamy paste. You can continue adding tablespoons of water to make the filling creamier if needed.

Stuff the dates with the delicious creamy feta paste. I like to be generous when doing this!

Once you have stuffed the dates, top them with walnut. And that’s all there is to it, except digging in and enjoying this delicious snack!
