” It’s Yoghurt, Jim, but not as we know it. “
Labneh, labne, lebne, strained yoghurt, yoghurt cheese
Labneh is a very thick, slightly salted, drained yogurt. Originally from the Middle Eastern cuisine. Its pungent and slightly sour taste in combination with its creamy mouthfeel, ensures an intense flavour. In our cheese dairy, the yogurt drains for 48 hours. This way, all that is good things in the yogurt are concentrated.
Labneh is not eaten like any other yogurt. Because our Labne is slightly sour and salty, you should eat it as a yogurt dip, snack, mezze, sharing, savoury breakfast, healthy meal or as a meat substitute. Spread on a beautiful plate, top it with olive oil and fresh or dried herbs, grilled vegetables and eat labneh with flatbread.
In the Zuivelarij we eat Labne as a healthy vegetarian meal or sharing dish. We want you to look for your most beautiful plate, your best oil and some creativity. Don’t forget to share your Labneh creations with us on social.
