How to make labneh

Labneh is a creamy Middle Eastern cheese/spread, and so easy to make at home!

  • 7 oz Greek yogurt 200g/1 small tub
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ¼ tsp lemon juice


  • Mix together the yogurt, salt and lemon juice. Tip the mixture into a doubled-over cheesecloth sat in a sieve or small colander. Place over a bowl, fold the cheesecloth over the yogurt mixture and refrigerate for 12-24 hours. The longer you leave it, the firmer it will become.
  • When ready, gently squeeze any excess liquid and transfer to a small dish/plate. I'd suggest serving as I have here topped with zaatar and olive oil, but you can also sweeten it up topped with a little honey and nuts.
