” It’s Yoghurt, Jim, but not as we know it. “
Labneh, labne, lebne, strained yoghurt, yoghurt cheese
Labneh is a very thick, savory yogurt, originating in the Middle Eastern kitchen. Its pungent, slightly sourish taste in combination with its creamy mouthfeel, ensure an intense flavour. In our cheese dairy, the yogurt has the time to drain for 48 hours. This way, al the good in the yogurt can be concentrated.
You don’t just eat Labneh like any other Yogurt. Because it is slightly sourish, you should eat it as a yogurt dip, snack, mezze, sharing, savoury breakfast, healthy meal or as a meat substitute. Spread on a nice plate, top with olive oil, fresh or dried herbs, grilled vegetables, then eat it with flatbread.
Personally, we love to eat Labneh as a healthy meal or share it as a starter. If you use a little bit of creativity, you can easily put a beautiful plate on the table. Don’t forget to share your creations with us!
