Homemade Labneh Cheese Balls


For serving:

1 box Milton’s Gourmet Fire Roasted Vegetable Crackers

For the labneh balls:

Homemade or store-bought labneh see notes for a link to our homemade labneh recipe

1 Tbsp dehydrated garlic

1 Tbsp zataar spice

1 slice dehydrated lemon

Olive oil for rolling and labneh ball storage


Make labneh according to Food by Maria's recipe. (Note: you will need 24 hours for the homemade labneh.) Once labneh is prepared, scoop out 2 tablespoons per ball to make 8 labneh balls. Put a little bit of olive oil on your hands and roll each one. Set on a plate. Now make the spice mix: to a spice grinder or high-powered blender add dehydrated lemon slice, dehydrated garlic and zataar. Pulse until a finer, combined texture is created. Pour the spice mixture onto a plate or in a low bowl and roll each labneh ball in the spice mixture. Repeat until all labneh balls are done. Finally, transfer the spiced labneh balls to a clear glass container or jar. Pour in enough olive oil to cover all of the balls and refrigerate for up to two weeks. Enjoy the labneh balls spread onto Milton’s Gourmet Fire Roasted Vegetable Crackers.
