Labneh (Yogurt Cheese)

Breakfast
Labna

 

Smooth and creamy home-made cheese has never been so easy. You can make it to suit sweet or savoury toppings or Natural just using the yogurt.    

 

Ingredients

For savoury yogurt cheese:

  • 1 small crushed garlic clove
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • ½ teaspoon salt 
For sweet style yogurt cheese:
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of orange zest                   

 

Method       

Place a sieve over a bowl and line the inside with a generous piece of muslin or a new kitchen dish cloth.  Pour the yogurt into the lined sieve and secure the cloth around to make a ball twisting the top to extract the liquid (whey) leave over night or longer squeezing and twisting occasionally. The longer it drains the firmer the cheese will be.

 

Try the savoury cheese on bagels with smoked salmon, micro greens and capers, avocado and ham, or vine tomatoes and basil 

               

Variations/Comments

For sweet versions try strawberry or fruit jams or sliced banana and drizzle over honey. It’s great on scones or muffins and toasted fruit bread too.
