Trachanopita – Τραχανόπιτα με φέτα4 comments Sep 25th, 2010 | By Tobias | Category: Recipes, Starters
Trachanas is a type of fermented cracked wheat with yogurt. It can be found in Turkish, Albanian, Persian, Greek and Bulgarian language, so I assume it is quite spread in the these regions. Often it is turned into a soup but one can also make a pie from it as you can see above.
Preparation time: 20 minutes
baking time: 40 minutes
- 250 gram of Trachanas or Bulgur
- 350 gram of feta cheese
- 4 eggs
- 150 ml milk
- salt and pepper
Cook the trachanas, then drain them. How long they cook depends on the type of Trachanas. Check the instructions on the package.
Place the Trachanas in a bowl and add the milk. Grind the feta cheese and add to the bowl. Add the eggs and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
Oil a baking pan. Add the Trachanas and cheese mixture. Bake for 40 minutes at 340 degrees F.
When done, remove from the oven and let it cool down before you serve it.
