    Yogurt Cheese

    Put 2 cups of any kind of plain yogurt (low-fat, fat-free, or full-fat Greek-style) on top of the cheesecloth, place over bowl and let sit at room temperature a couple of hours or overnight to let the liquid drain.

    This makes a creamy, semi-firm cheese that can be used in dips and spreads. If you like, mix in salt, pepper, garlic, and herbs before the draining process.

    Wouldn't you mix in the herbs/garlic AFTER the draining process? Otherwise you'd lose half of what you added.

    I see what you mean, but that doesn't seem to be a problem. It's a little easier to stir in seasonings while the yogurt is still soft, too.

    I saw this just in time -- I have a huge tub of plain yoghurt that I bought for a recipe and didn't know what to do with the rest -- off to make some cheese:-)

    Greeks make a great dip like this, including garlic and chopped cucumber. WAY better than sour cream dip, and healthy!
