Homemade labneh balls preserve in extra-virgin olive oil with herbs and chili flakes. I first discovered labneh A few years ago, during my trip to UAE. They serve this creamy strained yogurt in cubes dusted with za’atar, nuts, and dried chili flakes, and drizzled with olive oil. Before then, I hadn’t heard of labneh. Yogurt cheese sounds unfamiliar and odd to me, but when I finally try it for myself, labneh really caught my attention. They look like the jewel in my eyes. Their creamy texture combined with fragrant spices and rich oil is so luscious. Back then is really hard to find labneh in Jakarta, luckily they’re so easy to make. It is made by strained full-fat plain yogurt through cheesecloth until it becomes thick and spreadable. The longer you strain, the thicker the labneh becomes. Strain the yogurt for 24-48 hours ff you want to use labneh as a dip or to spread on toast, strain it longer if you want to make labneh balls If you make this Homemade Labneh Balls, be sure to leave a comment and tag me on Instagram!

This easy fig and walnut chutney is fragrant with port, cinnamon, star anise, orange zest and maple syrup. It smells just like the holidays, and it’s the perfect addition to cheese platters or cheese plates. For an easy crostini, spoon the chutney over fresh ricotta or brie on toasted baguette slices. It’s also excellent with roasted turkey or pork (as well as on turkey and pork burgers!), and it makes a killer sandwich with cheese (think gruyere, Comté, brie or Taleggio) and arugula. You’ll need cheesecloth and butcher’s twine to bundle the whole spices but if you don’t have one you could use a tea steeper or just add the spices and fish them out at the end.

What’s a Greek carrot cake, I hear you ask? Well, for me, all things Greek use Greek yoghurt wherever possible! So yes, this is a carrot cake without cream cheese -I substitute in that tart, rich tang of Greek yoghurt instead, to make for a slightly healthy carrot cake, as well as a yummy one. That tart, sweet tang is literally ‘the icing on the cake’ when it comes to carrot cake - that vegetable, spiced moist batter is just complemented so perfectly by a tangy sweet frosting. Carrot cake might just be my favourite cake - and that’s saying something! Being wholemeal flour, as well as containing carrots, raisins, and walnuts as well as eggs and plenty of spices, I can convince myself that this indulgent treat is at least doing me a little bit more good than a decadent fudge cake, for example. Yoghurt icing for carrot cake isn’t completely pioneering - it really does mimic that slightly sour-sweet tang that cream cheese frosting delivers, but with the added goodness of Greek yoghurt. A creamy Greek yoghurt frosting is just as easy to make as a cream cheese one, and we are always more likely to have Greek yoghurt in the fridge - so it just makes this cake a real easy store cupboard bake for our household.

I topped this baked cheese crisp (which is a popular dish called Frico in Italy) with pizza spices and toppings before sliding it into the oven. The results: crustless pizza! This dish is a fast & easy, low-carb, high protein way to enjoy pizza night anytime, and it travels well too. Recently, I took a batch on a flight.
