What is Labneh?

Labneh is a tangy, thick, and creamy textured spreadable yogurt cheese dip, made by straining whole milk yogurt until it loses most if its liquid. The longer you strain it, the thicker it will get, usually in the fridge overnight. My fridge is always stocked with homemade Labneh. Here is the full recipe on how to make Labneh. 

TO MAKE THIS LABNEH FLATBREAD YOU WILL NEED:

  • Naan flatbread: Swap for any store-bought thin bread, flatbread, or pita. 
  • Labneh: Store bought or homemade
  • Fresh mint leaves: or dried mint, if fresh is not available  
  • Za’atar spice
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Pitted olives
