|The Ultimate Labneh Sandwich|
"How to make a Labneh sandwich?". "How to eat Labne?". "What is Labni?". These are few of the google search results that I get on my blog everyday. The majority of my audience is not from the Middle East, so they read or hear about Labneh, but they just don't know how to eat it. I previously told you that I make my own organic 2% fat yogurt (read about it here), then I use the yogurt to make organic Labneh (read about it here), and I also use the by product whey to make Organic Cheese (Read about it here). However, I want to cover an uber important issue, how to make the ultimate Labneh sandwich. The variations are endless, but this is how I like to make my sandwich and I am going to tell you the ultimate secret behind rolling a good old Middle Eastern Sandwich.
You can use any store bought Labneh, but I like to use my own homemade organic 2% Labneh. (read about it here)
Because it is the ultimate Labneh sandwich, I love to use a thin Lavash sort of bread called Khebz Marqooq (خبز مرقوق), which it literally translates into thinly rolled down bread. I believe that almost every culture has it's version. My local Middle Eastern Market gets this bread once a week from LA. You can use pita bread too (here is my Pita bread recipe, read here). In the Middle East the Pita bread is much bigger and you can make a decent sandwich with it.
Cut in half and enjoy with a cup of tea. No one in the Middle East eats a Labneh sandwich with coffee. You can add a sprinkle of Zaatar too. Now go and make the ultimate Labneh for breakfast/lunch or dinner.
