Trachanas Soup - Soup with Crushed Wheat Cooked in Sour Milk

By Mrs Sandri Lysandrou



Ingredients:

  • 145g trachanas or 1 glass trachanas, coarsely crushed
  • 5 ½ glasses water
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • ¾ - 4/5 glass Halloumi cheese in cubes

Method:

  • Rinse trachanas and soak overnight or several hours before cooking in 1 ½ glasses of water.
  • To cook, pour trachanas with any liquid left into a small pan, add the remaining 4 glasses of water and the chicken stock cube.
  • Cover and place over heat.
  • As soon as the soup starts boiling, reduce the heat and continue to simmer for a further 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking on the base of the pan.
  • Two or three minutes before removing the soup from heat, stir in the Halloumi cheese.
  • Serve hot.
