Turn the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Lightly oil six shallow oven-proof ramekins, put 2 teaspoons of labne in the bottom of each and place four halves of brain on the labne. Sprinkle the feta over them and grind some black pepper on top of this. Mix the remaining labne with the paprika and olive oil and spread lightly over the brains. Place the ramekins on a baking tray and bake for 6—10 minutes until the labne begins to bubble and the brains are hot. Serve at once – but be warned, they will be scalding.
