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.
it brings back memories of eating trachana in my mothers kitchen .
Great! I use it in my soups and stews. Adds great flavor.
I made soup with the trachanas and it was delicious, so I ordered more. Highly recommend it .

Versatile as cereal, soup or rice/pasta alternative. Rich taste, filling grain dish.
