Banana Peppers fried with Egyptian Farm Cheese

Raggag Bread-thin and crispy

Strained yoghurt or labneh is popular in the Levant. Besides being used fresh, labneh is also dried then formed into balls, sometimes covered with herbs or spices, and stored in olive oil. Labneh is a popular mezze dish and sandwhich ingredient. The flavour depends largely on the sort of milk used: labneh from cows milk has a rather milder flavour.
The Banana peppers were fried in a bit of olive oil and when soft white farm cheese was added to it over low heat and taken off fire when melted a bit. This recipe was inspired by:http://almostturkish.blogspot.com/
Raggag bread was used for soup and the recipe can be found in my recipe collection.
