    yasminx's Note:

    Simple, but tasty soup my father made on occasion when I was young. I found it on an African recipe site whilst trying to track down another forgotten recipe I longed for. Preparation time excludes the time taken to soak chickpeas. Some tips and ideas.- "The soup can also be served by placing portions of bread crumbs in each soup bowl, ladling the soup over the bread, and pouring equal portions of lemon juice and olive oil over the soup. Serve with additional harissa on the side. A richer lablabi soup can be made by frying the garlic, some chopped red onion, a chopped carrot, and some chopped celery in olive oil, and adding this to the cooked chick peas. Additionally, the chick peas can be cooked in chicken broth or chicken stock. Goes well with hard-boiled egg or pan-fried fish."

      I was unfortunately quite disappointed by this recipe. It tasted nothing like the lablabi I have eaten in Tunisia. It lacked flavor, was too watery, and there was way too much lemon. I couldn't even finish my portion. Would not recommend it to anyone.
