Labneh is yogurt as it was once meant to be eaten: not sweet, but savory.David De Coster
Labneh, labne, lebne, strained yoghurt, yoghurt cheese
Labneh is a very thick, lightly salted, long drained yogurt from the middle eastern kitchen. The yogurt has a sharp, slightly sour aroma that, in combination with the mouthfeel, creates an intense taste sensation. In the Zuivelarij, we still make the cheesein the traditional way. The yogurt strains in linen bags for 48 hours. All the good things of the yogurt are concentrated in this way.
The Middle East on your plate
You don’t eat Labneh like other yogurt. You eat it as a dip, snack, mezze, sharing, savory breakfast, healthy meal or meat substitute. Spread it on your most beautiful plate, top with olive oil, fresh or dried herbs. Or use grilled vegetables and salsa, and eat with delicious flatbread. The possibilities with this savory yogurt are truly endless.
In our Dairy We like to eat the yogurt cheese as a healthy meal or as a sharing starter or side dish. With some creativity you can quickly and very easily put a beautiful plate on the table. Don’t forget to send us your own creations! Share a photo of your creation with our Labneh, and tag @de.zuivelarij.
