Trahanas was something i used to eat only when i was 10-12 years old and usually when i was spending the summer with my Grandparents. I just recently started to add it again on my diet and i realised why it was the favourite of my grandparents.
The following recipe is a standard dish for any time of the day during summer in Greece. Kagianas (Καγιανάς) is an easy to make dish that takes advantage of the tomatoes that are in season. Add a little bit of feta and you have yourself a meal!
Couple of day ago I was talking with my dad who reminded me how much he liked to try different recipes that include aubergines which is I think a characteristic ingredient in Greek, Turkish and in general middle east kitchen.
Looking back on the recipes I have done, I can find a lot that include aubergines and most probably I can think couple also that I haven’t even tried to cook until now. The following reminds a lot of the aubergine salad I did some time ago but it is a nice idea, especially if you are having a barbeque and you want something to have together with the meat you are grilling.
