Diet Types: Low Fat, Vegetarian
Ingredients:
  • 4 cups non-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon blue cheese
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • Serves: 4
    Cooking Time: Over one hour
    Instructions:
    Line a colander or strainer with a large cloth napkin, a dish towel or a double layer of cheesecloth. Turn 1 quart non-fat plain yogurt into the colander and set over a bowl to drain. Refrigerate. Let drain 6 hours to overnight, depending how stiff you want the cheese to be. Cheese is "done" when it is the consistency of soft cream cheese. Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, it will keep 2 weeks or more. Makes 2 cups. For the Blue Cheese Dip: Place 1/2 cup of yogurt cheese and remaining ingredients in a food processor. Blend until pale green.
