Trahana is one of the oldest foods in the Eastern Mediterranean, a tiny, pebble-shaped grain product that varies widely all over Greece. For the most part it evolved as an ingenious way to preserve milk. 

Trahana is made with either semolina, wheat flour, bulgur or cracked wheat. Milk, buttermilk, or yogurt are mixed into the flour or wheat to form a thick mass.

In addition to the classic trahanas soup, it can be used to make trahanoto, pie, velvet soup or use it in recipes and fillings instead of rice. It is also great in the classic Greek soup avgo lemono.
