Friday Cooking Demo - Labna Cheese

  • 3 Coffee Filters
  • Perforated Pan
  • 1 Container Greek Yogurt (4 cups approximately)
  • 2 TBSP. High Quality Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • Juice and grated zest of lemon
  • 1 TBSP. Chopped Thyme
  • 2 TBSP. Chopped Mint
  1. Mix all ingredients together well in a bowl.
  2. Using coffee filters distribute the mixture evenly between three filters and twist the filter to form a "coin purse" shape. Tie off the coin purse at the top & place in a perforated pan.
  3. Place another pan on top of the "coin purse" & place both containers in another to catch the liquid as it drips. Let the mixture set for 24-48 hours. During this process the liquid in the yogurt will slowly drip out & start to clump together forming a delicious cheese.

Yields 3.5 cups Labna Cheese
