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? 🙂

Yogurt Cheese For A Healthy Snack

 

Our #yogurt #cheese is wonderfully versatile as a dip or spread, and #healthy too! No sugars, no preservatives, and full of healthy #probiotics. Keep it simple like this: yogurt cheese, good olive oil (that heavenly smell!!), salt, and pepper. Or add spices and herbs for more ooomph! I personally add a squeeze of lemon or lemon zest because i like it a bit tangy. Anyway you choose, it’s dreamily creamy, but not cloying or chokingly thick. Great as a snack on bread or veggie sticks. PM for other ideas we’ve tried (but haven’t posted yet) or google labneh for other ideas.
