Apple Halloumi and Labneh Flatbreads

This Mess Is Ours

These Apple, Halloumi, and Labneh Flatbreads really showcased some delicious Middle Eastern flavors that everyone at our table went nuts for!  

These flatbreads practically touch on every flavor and texture note you could ask for in a meal and have a few new-to-us Middle Eastern inspired ingredients that my family was super excited to try. Let's break them down shall we?

– Greek yogurt – olive oil spray – package halloumi – mini naan bread – arugula – 1 Stemilt Piñata® Apple – pomegranate arils – ground Aleppo pepper


White Scribbled Underline

To Make Labneh

Place a mesh sieve over a bowl and line it with cheesecloth. Place the Greek yogurt into the strainer, pull the cheesecloth over the top and place into the refrigerator. Allow to strain in the refrigerator for 2 days.

To Make Flatbread

Once the labneh is ready, lightly spray a non-stick skillet with olive oil spray and heat over medium high heat. Add slices of halloumi to the skillet and cook for 1 - 2 minutes per side until golden.


Spread 1-2 tbsp labneh onto each naan, top with 1/4 of the arugula, 2 slices of the prepared halloumi, slices of apple, and 1/4 of the pomegranate arils. Sprinkle Aleppo pepper over top and serve immediately.

If the flavor profiles in these Apple, Halloumi, and Labneh Flatbreads don't entice you to try them for yourself maybe the prep time will...not counting the process to make the labneh these babies take less than 15 minutes to put together!
