Lablabi

The basic Lablabi is a tasty chick pea stew served with chunks of day old French bread. Of course there are multiple add-in’s available. Most Tunisians add harissa, egg and tuna which I highly recommend. The more adventurous ask for some lamb head or knee bones!

ingredients

directions

  • Soak chickpeas and when ready to make Lablabi rinse well and add to about 8 cups cold water. You may also substitute broth for the water. Bring to boil. Add garlic, cumin and harissa. Let simmer for about 1-2 hrs until chickpeas are soft. Add salt to taste ( you won’t need any if you use broth). Add more water as needed.
  • If you use prepared chick peas you only need to cook for 30 minutes or so.
  • When chick peas are soft you can use an immersion blender or smash some of the soft chickpeas if you want a thicker broth. If you like a thin broth just leave as is.
  • When ready to eat stir in the Olive Oil, lemon juice and parsley.
