This is an inexpensive, flavoursome, quick and healthy dish to make. Although very popular in Greece, the name probably indicates it originates from Turkey.
You will need:
3 courgettes, 2 aubergines, 1 or 2 potatoes, 2 large red onions, 1 large red or green pepper, 1-2 teacups of olive oil; 1 tin chopped tomatoes.
1 Slice vegetables into thick 1/2 inch cuts (potatoes slightly thinner);
2. Place into oven dish, pour over oil, tomatoes and season.
3. Mix well.
4. Add a little hot water.
TIP: Do not be afraid to use this much olive oil, this dish needs it.
Cook for about 90 minutes or until cooked.
Every 30 minutes, check and toss if necessary to ensure even cooking and add some more water if necessary.
Like with most dishes, you can add parsley or whatever else you like.
Serve with crusty bread & Feta Cheese.

Trahana has been made in Cyprus for generations and is a tradition fewer and fewer people know to do.
The sausage like strips of dried bulghar wheat, Trahana, are left to dry in the sun to then to be stored for consumption in Winter months by adding water and Halloumi cheese to make this popular soup.
The EU recently issued a Directive to stop this process as it can be harmful. I am sure you will all wish to join me in sticking a big finger up to the EU and their incredibly stupid bureacrats.
Long live Trahana!
