roasted red grapes
Laura Edwards



300g greek yogurt
4 tbsp caster sugar
400g seedless red grapes
100ml pomegranate molasses
50g pistachio nuts, roughly chopped
2 tbsp clear honey, to drizzle

2. To prepare the creamy strained yogurt (aka labneh), start the day before. Simply line a sieve with a few layers of cheesecloth or muslin. Pour in the greek yogurt, gather up the cloth and suspend the sieve over a bowl. Excess water will drain from the yogurt overnight, giving you a thick, creamy labneh the following day. When ready, stir through 3 tablespoons of the caster sugar.

2. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4. Place the red grapes, pomegranate molasses and remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar in a roasting tin and mix together so that the grapes are evenly coated. Roast for 10-15 minutes, keeping a close eye beyond 10 minutes. You want the grapes to retain their shape and texture, and not collapse too much. When ready, remove from the oven and cool a little.

3. To serve, spoon the homemade labneh into shallow bowls. Top with the roasted red grapes and their juice. Decorate with roughly chopped pistachios and drizzle clear honey on top to finish.
