7. Cashew Labneh

Labneh is a tangy, thick and creamy strained yogurt cheese from Lebanon. It is traditionally made from camel or goat milk, and is extremely addictive. Whenever I’d go to the north of Israel close to the Lebanese border, we would stop at one of the many Druze stands where friendly grandmothers would sell the most delicious labneh laffa (flatbread). This Cashew Labneh by Kirsten Kaminski combines soy and cashews, with a tangy lemon taste to imitate that sour flavor. Sprinkle with some za’atar and add it to your mezze table.
