Trahana is one of the oldest foods in the Eastern Mediterranean, a tiny, pebble-shaped grain product that varies widely all over Greece and this is just about the simplest dish to make with trahana.  I think that it’s best made during the summer when you can get ripe, luscious tomatoes… but can be made anytime of the year as it ‘s also perfect for cold winter days as it literally warms your soul.
