Labneh is a thick, tangy, velvety strained yogurt with a mascarpone-like flavour. It makes a great base for sweet strawberries, tart cassis syrup and toasted pistachios.

  • Prep time 25 minutes
  • Total time 1 hour & 15 minutes
  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups hulled strawberries , quartered
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup crème de cassis
  • 2 cups labneh or plain Greek yogurt (see tip in Method)
  • 1/3 cup chopped toasted salted pistachios

Method

In large bowl, toss together strawberries, sugar and crème de cassis. Let stand until mixture is syrupy, 20 minutes to 1 hour.

Strain strawberry syrup into large saucepan. Return strawberries to same bowl. Bring strawberry syrup to boil over medium-high heat; cook until thick, 10 to 15 minutes. Scrape into small bowl; stir in 1 tbsp water. Let cool to room temperature. If syrup becomes too thick, gently warm in saucepan and stir in up to 1 tbsp hot water to loosen.

Divide labneh among 4 bowls. Divide half of the strawberry syrup among bowls, swirling into labneh. Top with strawberries; sprinkle with pistachios. Drizzle with remaining syrup, if desired.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: To make your own labneh, line a fine-mesh sieve with cheesecloth or a large coffee filter; set over a large bowl. Spoon in plain Greek yogurt; refrigerate and let drain overnight.
