I took these pictures earlier at breakfast. We had mini & maxi labneh sandwiches, coffee and Darjeeling, and a delicious vitamin booster with ginger, tangerine, banana & kiwi .
When I lived in Saudi Arabia, I used to buy similar labneh balls from Tamimi, a supermaket in Riyadh. They were sold in a jar, preserved in olive oil and their texture was slightly harder. Probably the balls were not made by hand. Maybe they had a special press to shape the balls and so, squeeze all the excess water out of them.
However, now that I am back home I do everything by hand. I buy full fat yoghurt, I strain it and I shape the balls using my palms.
Spread the cheese on the bread with a butter knife and, if you want, sprinkle extra zataar &mint for a more intense taste.
