Labneh Tart

 

Well I am sure you have read about my weekly yogurt making ritual.  I love making yogurt and if you want to give it a shot, How to Make Yogurt.  It is so simple to do and is so useful in so many ways.

One way to use your excess yogurt is to make Labneh.  Labneh is a strained yogurt that is the consistency of cream cheese.  It is light and tangy and great in spreads….or desserts 🙂  Here is How to Make Labneh.

I found this amazing recipe from Alice Medrich.
