Spiced Labne Balls (Yogurt Cheese)
One product we received is labne, a most luscious, creamy, thick yogurt that makes Greek-style yogurt look thin! No kidding; this stuff is unbelievable!
Here’s a great way to serve labne as an appetizer.
1. Place the labne in a mixing bowl. Stir in the cumin, mint, pepper and salt.
2. Fill a shallow serving bowl or plate with about 1/8" of olive oil.
3. Use a small ice cream scoop to scoop out even portions of labne – or – lightly grease your hands to form balls about the size of walnuts. Arrange the scoops of labne in the dish on top of the oil. If desired, garnish with crushed mint, coarsely chopped parsley or cilantro.
To serve: spread on crackers or pita triangles.
