Easy 2 ingredient cheese - Labneh


  • 500g/17 oz plain full fat yogurt or soy yogurt, purchased or make your own
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (if you'd rather have a sweet version, use 3 tablespoons of superfine/caster sugar instead of the salt)
  • Flavorings/spices: crushed coriander or cumin seeds, citrus zest, pinch dried chilli, fresh herbs finely chopped, vanilla paste, chopped dried fruits, etc. (Optional)

The yogurt and salt are the only ones required and any other ingredients you add would simply be for flavoring. The directions are at the link. Has anybody here made labneh before? Does it really taste like cheese?
