The Most Delicious Yogurt Dip You Will Have
IMAGE COURTESY SIMPLE PROVISIONS
Everyone in my family LOVES Middle Eastern food. So my mum decided to create her own version of the famous Middle-Eastern yogurt dip, labneh. This has easily become one of the favorites for every dinner party at home. Since we're all at home experimenting with new cuisines to cook, this delicious low calorie dip needs to be next on the list.
- 1.5 cups of hung yogurt
- 5 to 8 cloves of garlic sliced (depending on the size)
- 5 to 6 sun dried tomatoes chopped
- 1.5 tsp of crushed red pepper
- 1 cup Olive Oil
- 4 to 5 olives sliced
- 5 to 6 leaves of fresh basil thinly sliced
- Salt to taste
Step 1 - Pour the olive oil and garlic into a small pan and then turn on the heat on a low flame.
Step 2 - Once the oil stars to sizzle, turn off the heat.
Step 3 - Add the crushed red pepper to the sauce pan and give it a good stir. Let sit for a couple minutes.
Step 4 - Put the sun dried tomatoes, basil, olives in an air tight glass jar. After the oil has cooled down a little, add it to the jar with the rest of the ingredients. Add then add salt to taste. Give it a good stir and set aside for 2-3 hours to infuse.
Step 5 - Place the yogurt in a dish and pour the olive oil mixture on top and serve.
I like to have this with some pita bread but you can serve it with sweet potato fries or even an assortment of fresh veggies!
