Recipe

Labneh with Zahtar

2 cups yogurt, plain

Place the cloth over a strainer and pour the yogurt into the cloth.

Add the salt and Zahtar and stir lightly with a spoon.

Fold the corners of the cloth to the center and tie together with string.

The cloth should be well sealed so as not to leak. Place a heavy plate on the bag and put the strainer

in a larger bowl to capture the draining liquid, refrigerate.

Depending on the preferred firmness, the mixture can be left for up to 3 days.
