Labneh is a staple in Middle Eastern cuisine and has gained popularity in recent years due to its tangy flavor and creamy texture. At Gaza Grill, we make our labneh in-house using only the finest organic ingredients. Combined with fresh, organic Danish beetroots, this classic pairing makes for a delicious and healthy addition to any meal. In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of using organic ingredients, how we make our labneh at Gaza Grill, and share a recipe for you to try at home.
Why Choose Organic?
At Gaza Grill, we believe in using only the best quality ingredients in our dishes. That’s why we source our beetroots and labneh from local Danish farms that use organic and sustainable farming practices. Organic farming avoids the use of harmful chemicals and pesticides, which can be harmful to the environment and your health. By choosing organic, you can be assured that the food you’re eating is of the highest quality and free from harmful chemicals.
Labneh is a creamy, tangy spread made from strained yogurt. It’s a staple in Middle Eastern cuisine and is commonly used as a dip or spread. At Gaza Grill, we make our labneh in-house using only organic ingredients. Here’s how we do it:
2 cups of plain yogurt (preferably organic)
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Line a strainer with cheesecloth and place it over a bowl.
Mix the yogurt and salt in a bowl and pour it into the cheesecloth-lined strainer.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
The next day, remove the labneh from the cheesecloth and transfer it to a bowl.
Drizzle with Palestine olive oil and sprinkle with za’atar before serving.
Fresh, Organic Beetroots
Beetroots are a versatile vegetable that are packed with nutrients. They’re high in fiber, vitamin C, and potassium, making them a healthy addition to any meal. At Gaza Grill, we use fresh, organic Danish beetroots in our dishes. Our beetroots are sourced from local farms that use sustainable and organic farming practices. Here’s how we use them in one of our signature dishes:
2 organic Danish beetroots
1 tablespoon of Palestine olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
1/4 cup of chopped parsley
Preheat the oven to 375°F (ca. 190°C).
Peel and slice the beetroots into 1/4-inch thick rounds.
In a bowl, toss the beetroots with Palestine olive oil, salt, and black pepper.
Arrange the beetroots on a baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes, or until tender.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with chopped parsley before serving.
