50% SALE: Trachanas from Glykovrisi, Lakonia (16 oz)
To prepare trahana, just combine broth (or water) in a ratio of approximately 6:1 to trahana. Let it simmer for approximately 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. You can adjust the water or time to achieve either a soup-like, or thicker, porridge-like consistency. It can be enjoyed as a breakfast cereal like oatmeal plain or paired with Greek yogurt and/or honey. It is also delicious with fried eggs. As a meal by itself, you can add ingredients like tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, garlic and other vegetables or just a drizzle one of our Greek olive oils and a sprinkling of feta cheese and black pepper. Prepared thicker, its pleasing savory earthy flavor is an excellent accompaniment for a variety of meat dishes in place of other starches like rice, mashed potatoes or polenta.
The Trachanas is a new food to me and I found it delicious!
I don't know yet because it is a new food to me and I'm not sure what to do with it. There are no instructions or suggestions on the label.
I enjoyed making Trahana soup. I hadn’t had it since I was a child. The taste is excellent, brought back a lot of good memories
A traditional food that works as a cereal but goes beyond.
I loved this unique quick cooking pasta alternative and made Diane's recipe with it and eggplant which was delicious. However, the second time I cooked the trachanas in chicken stock with minced garlic, parsley, dill and thyme. I cooked it a little too long causing it to soften too much but what I got was a delicious quick soup that was hearty and very much a comfort meal for a rainy day!
