"Iab (sometimes spelled aiyb or ayib) is a fresh cheese similar to cottage cheese. It's cooling flavor is the perfect foil for many spicy Ethiopian dishes. Iab is often served as the finish to an Ethiopian meal. The original recipe calls for just plain yogurt, but I prefer to use Greek yogurt or Labneh because it is thicker and gives a much better texture to the finished product."
Place the cottage cheese, yogurt, and lemon juice in a large bowl and use a wooden spoon to stir together and lightly mash the cheese curds. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Serve as a side dish or as the final course to an Ethiopian meal.

A simple yet flavorful dish that’s both easy to make and wonderful to eat.
Fast and easy. Good to cut the spiciness of the Ethiopian food. I thought about putting it in the blender to make it smooth. Might try that with the leftovers.
Super easy! I took the liberty to use dry cottage cheese curds because I wasn't sure. I liked the tartness of the yogurt and the lemon juice. I used this to make a Spinach and Cheese Saute. Made for Culinary Quest 2017 for the Smokin' Chefs. Thanks!
