Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain yogurt (made without gelatin)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. caraway seed
  • 1 tsp. fresh basil
  • 1 tsp. fresh dill
  • 1 tsp. fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp. snipped fresh chives

Directions

  • Line a strainer with a coffee filter, using it as a sieve. (If you donʼt have a paper coffee filter, you can line a colander with paper towels). Spoon yogurt into coffee filter. Place strainer over a bowl so yogurt can drain. Make sure there is at least an inch between the bottom of the strainer and the bottom of the bowl.
  • Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 24 hours. Discard liquid. Carefully remove homemade yogurt cheese from paper. Please note that the longer the yogurt drains, the thicker it becomes.
  • Combine yogurt cheese with remaining ingredients in medium-sized bowl until well blended. Cover tightly. Chill until ready to serve.
