Labnéh (Yoghurt Cheese)

labneh5

I make this cheese at least twice a month. It is clean, refreshing and it feels so good making a cheese sandwich with home made cheese 🙂

To make Labnéh you’ll need:

1 (175 gms) container 3% Balkan style yoghurt
2 tsp salt

Directions

– Add salt to yoghurt , stir to combine.
– Line a sieve with about 4 large coffee filters,place sieve over a large bowl. Spoon yoghurt into centre of sieve.

– Cover with plastic wrap and let yoghurt drain overnight.
– Transfer cheese into a sealed container. Keep unused portions in fridge . Discard excess water.
