Labneh = endless opportunities. If there were ever a blank canvas in the food world, this is it. Labneh is basically yogurt strained overnight to extract all of the whey, giving it an extremely thick consistency and sour tang. It is a staple in the Middle East and can be used in baking, soups, or on its own as a sweet or savory dip. This recipe is an example of the ease that Labneh can bring to your life. Can be a great breakfast or dessert for a crowd. Enjoy!
