Soup with homemade trahana - Trahanοsoupa


For the sour trahana

  • Add all of the ingredients into a large bowl and start kneading them with your hands, by adding the flour little by little. Your goal is to have a dough that does not stick to your hands. 
  • Lay a clean sheet on a large surface (e.g. your kitchen counter or table), cut the dough into pieces -the size of a hazelnut- and put them on the sheet. 
  • Cover the trahana with a piece of tulle and sun-dry it for 2-3 days.
  • In order to ensure that it has been dried, 2-3 days later, bake the trahana in the oven, at 50°C (120 °F) set to fan, for about 2 hours. 
  • Break it up into chunks, using a food processor, and transfer the trahana to cotton bags (or pillowcases) where you store it in a cool, dry place for about 1 year. 

For the trahana soup

  • In a pot add the water, the trahana, the salt, the olive oil, and simmer for about 10 minutes until the soup thickens. You should stir constantly since trahana can easily stick to the bottom of the pot. 
  • In a frying pan, add the olive oil and sauté the bacon, cut into strips, for 2-3 minutes. 
  • Serve the trahana with the bacon, sprinkle with fresh thyme, chili flakes, and toasted bread.
