The most versatile dip or spread. Very popular as a condiment that used for wraps, soup or dolloped on steak too
I first discovered these Labneh balls in Damascus in Syria. I loved how the Syrians use this for so many things, but I especially loved how they rolled this into different herbs, seeds & nuts, because it just looked visually jewel like.
People often mistake these for truffles, and they are visually great to look at and taste amazing on freshly buttered toast for breakfast or can be used instead of sour cream or creme friache in a soup. There are so many ways to use them, we serve them as a canapé for drinks reception, and even package them up for one of our Middle Eastern Royal Families who gives them away as gifts to his friends and clients.
It's so easy to make and versatile, having these prepared ahead of time sitting in the fridge and dusted with herbs just before a dinner party will impress anyone. We make our own yogurt, but you can use organic Greek yogurt from your local grocers or supermarket.
