Labneh & Sumac With Courgette |
Favourites 26

Total Time: 2 Minutes

Serves 6–8
Labneh is yogurt that's been strained to remove its whey, resulting in a thicker consistency while preserving its distinctive, sour taste – complemented by the vibrant Middle Eastern spice sumac, with its mild, almost lemony flavour. This dish can be prepared in very little time – which, for something so nutritious and flavoursome, is no mean feat.

  • 350g tub of labneh
  • Zest of ½ a lemon
  • 1 tbsp of pistachios, toasted and chopped
  • 1 tbsp of flaked or whole almonds, toasted and chopped
  • A small handful of coriander, roughly chopped
  • Pinch of sumac
  • 1½ tbsp of rapeseed, almond or good-quality olive oil
  • 1 courgette, peeled lengthways into ribbons
  • Griddled flatbread, to serve
  • Salt and pepper


1. Mix the labneh with the lemon zest and salt and pepper to taste and place in a dish. Scatter the surface with the nuts, chopped coriander and sumac, then drizzle with oil.
2. Serve the labneh with the courgette, drizzled with a little more oil, and the flatbread on the side.
