Once you've tried it, you won't want to miss it. Smoking originates from the USA and refers to indirect grilling. The cauliflower is cooked slowly - and gets its typical smoky flavor from the smoker. Labneh, with its freshness, is the ideal accompaniment. The Lebanese cream cheese is made from Greek yogurt. It supports the rustic note of the cauliflower.
