I always loved the concept of being able to make our own cheeses, I mean, imagine the possibilities! Beer cheese, roasted garlic cheese, extra smelly poppy seed cheese, and then reality usually sets in. I have no clue how to make ‘real’ cheese, and while that may be a project worth pursuing someday, it’s not something you can whip together Thursday night. This is when Yogurt Cheeses comes in handy. Not really a cheese, they are easy to make, very light, and you can add whatever stuff you like. Oh, and they taste great of course. The recipe is dead simple, the cheese is cheap (if you’re on a budget), and you can use it for appetizers, snacks or just plain cream cheese sandwiches. Enjoy.
Yogurt Cheese Recipe
- 16 oz of plain yogurt
- 4 roasted garlic
- 3 tbs chopped green onion, approximately 1 full green onion
Scoop the yogurt into a cheese cloth, and place in a funnel overnight, so it can drip all the liquid out. You should leave it at least 12 hours. It is done when the consistency is that of cream cheese. Chop the green onion. Mash the roasted garlic into a pulp, and stir it all together.
