How to make Labne – Yoghurt Cheese

If you haven’t tried Labne but love yoghurt, you are in for a treat! Similar in texture to a soft, spreadable cream cheese with that lovely yoghurt tang.


To make Labne simply take a pot of homemade Greek style yoghurt straight from the fridge and place cheesecloth over the top. Holding onto the cheesecloth turn it out into a colander that is sitting over a jug. Tie opposite corners of the cheesecloth over a wooden curd hanger and hang in a container in the fridge for 48 hours to remove the whey.

To the strained yoghurt, mix in a garlic and a hint of salt. You can use it as a spread or dip. Alternatively, roll into balls and then in dukka, fresh herbs, or dried red capsicum. The possibilities are endless for flavour combinations – so get creative which what you have already available to you.
