Wash the tomatoes. Cut in small cubes.


Put the tomatoes, the trahana, the water and the olive oil in the pot. Boil over medium heat for 13-15 min.


The trahanas must always have enough water because it has the tendency to absorb all the water.


Put salt and pepper. Serve in a bowl with feta cheese or a tablespoon of Greek yogurt.

Trahanas à la tomate

  • Fresh tomatoes in the UK just aren’t sweet enough for this dish. Also I think the quantities in one recipe would be fine for four people at least as a luncheon dish. A guide to the texture of the finished dish would be useful. It ended up being very thick, I don’t know if that is right. Anyway thanks for the recipe, but I think I will try something different next time.

    • Hello, thank you for your comment! If the tomatoes are not sweet enough or out of season, you can add a teaspoon of sugar or you can replace them by tomato sauce concasse for example. The texture in the end will be thick because the trahanas have the tendency to absorb all the liquid and it’s normal 🙂 We’ll try to add a video as soon as it is possible.

  • This came out so good! Added a little extra water because it was thick. Im Italian and married into a Greek family and this was my first time cooking with Trahana. Thank you for this delicious recipe. Used fresh tomatoes from the garden. Will definitely like to come back for more recipes. Thank you.
