Laban im Sufah

is a fantastic snack, or Hor D’oevre, or anytime dip for Syrian bread or any cracker of your choice.

Even raw veggies like red peppers, celery or carrots make a good dipping stick.

Recipe direct from Maria’s Kitchen: The Foodprint of My Life

1 qt. yoghurt
½ tsp. salt, to taste
2 tsp. garlic powder, to taste
Olive oil
Dried mint

Line a coffee funnel with filter paper. Spoon yoghurt into filter paper. Best left overnight in the refrigerator. The water (whey) in the yoghurt will drain leaving a thick cheese curd. Mix the salt and garlic into the cheese. Spread onto a low flat dish. Sprinkle top with olive oil and dusting of dried mint. Serve with wedges of pita bread. *My grandson Keith and my granddaughter Nicole really love this.

This is a real Syrian appetizer

You, your guests, your family will love this, we promise.
