EasiYo Labana

Makes 1

Recipe supplied by EasiYo

Ingredients

  • 500g of EasiYo Greek Style yogurt

For the Savoury Yogurt Cheese

  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the Sweet Style Yogurt Cheese

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of orange zest

Instructions

  1. Place a sieve over a bowl and line the inside with a generous piece of muslin or a new kitchen dish cloth.
  2. Pour the yogurt into the lined sieve and secure the cloth around to make a ball, twisting the top to extract the liquid (whey).
  3. Leave in the fridge overnight or longer, squeezing and twisting occasionally. The longer it drains the firmer the cheese will be.

EasiYo’s tips:

Try the savoury cheese on bagels with smoked salmon, micro greens and capers, avocado and ham, or vine tomatoes and basil.

For sweet versions try strawberry or fruit jams or sliced banana and drizzle over honey. it’s great on scones or muffins and toasted fruit bread too.
