Place yogurt into a very fine mesh strainer lined with cheese cloth. Place strainer over a bowl to allow water to drain away from yogurt.
Cover yogurt gently with plastic wrap and allow it to drain for at least 8 hours, overnight is best. Dispose of drained liquid left in bowl and place labneh in an airtight container until ready to use.
For beet, fill a medium sized pot full of water and bring to a boil, add beet and cook until very tender approximately 25 to 35 minutes.
Once beet is tender, cool then wipe skin off using a paper towel, set aside.
In a food processor, combine yogurt, beet, salt and pepper, shallots and lemon juice. Pulse until very smooth and creamy, season to taste, refrigerate and keep for up to a week.
Chef's Note: I like to serve this with Homemade Fennel Flatbread, recipe on It is also great as a vegetable dip or a colorful sauce to serve along side roasted chicken.
