What is labne (or labneh)
Labne is a fermented dairy product with a thicker than Greek yogurt consistency and is very popular in Middle Eastern cuisine. You may see it spelled lebneh, lebnah, labaneh, labane, labne, or labni. Labne works for breakfast with fruits and pairs equally well with savory flavors as a spread for bagels or as a dip which I share in the recipe below.
You can also use labneh for a lighter version of no-bake cheesecake and pair it with honey or fruits. So creamy good and delicious!
For this specific recipe, I recommend Mediterranean Style Labne from Karoun Cheese which has a distinctive tangy flavor and is a delicious alternative for a healthier lifestyle. In case you’re not familiar with Karoun cheese, all their products are made with fresh, growth hormone-free Real California Milk. This insures that they retain the traditional qualities necessary for a healthy Mediterranean diet.

Best way to enjoy labne dip
Aside from naan or pita chips, I like pairing this dip with vegetables, such as carrots, celery, cucumber, and bell peppers. You can also add some protein, such as chicken wings or popcorn chicken.
Instead of gochujang, combine labne with dill, crushed garlic, lemon, and salt. Then serve it as a spread for bagels and smoked salmon.
If you prefer something cooler, mix labne with cucumber, mint, and garlic.
Keep it simple with a drizzle of olive oil on top!
You can store gochujang labne dip in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
