Herbed Yogurt Cheese With Pistachios

Schmear your bread (toasted of course, for that crunch!) with this luxuriant spread resplendent with fresh flavors: yogurt cheese, lemon zest, EVOO, fresh basil (and other herbs, if you have), a dash of paprika, pink Himalayan salt, and chopped pistachios (just because they were there). Also known as labneh, yogurt cheese is a thicker version of Greek yogurt, which spreads like cream cheese but with the tang of yogurt. It’s rich and creamy, yet not cloying like cream cheese.

The same way you top your Greek yogurt with fruits and granola for your breakfast bowl, you can top your yogurt cheese with savory items: herbs, spices (ooh, I love smoked salt!)….this list is endless! And did I mention that this is so healthy and full of probiotics and protein? 🙂
