Lebneh is a very popular breakfast food. It has a smooth, tangy flavor, and when you add garlic and mint to it, the flavor is enhanced even more. It's a great spread on toast, a bagel, or even pita.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 6 servings
- 2 cups Plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp minced garlic (optional)
- 1 tsp dried mint (optional)
- Place a strainer over a bowl. Line the strainer with 2 layers of cheesecloth. Pour Greek yogurt into the cheesecloth. Gently bring together the ends of the cheesecloth, and twist it to hold in yogurt. This helps liquid drain out. Set the cheesecloth back in the strainer, and refrigerate for two days to drain. Remove lebneh spread from the cheesecloth. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. If you wish, you can stir in smashed garlic and mint to taste and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
