The people who have visited Tunisia, they will be well aware of a very famous breakfast dish served with crusty and day-old bread which is almost available from all of the restaurants even from street stalls. This is known as “Lablabi” made up of chickpeas which are soaked in water overnight.
The chickpeas are boiled in water till become tendered before preparing Lablabi and then these are mixed with spicy and hot soup containing the simmered mixture of fried garlic, harissa sauce, ground cumin, and salt. After becoming ready, Lablabi is served hot after adding lemon juice, olive oil, and bread crumbs. Tunisian cuisine is spicier as compared to other North African cuisine. The Lablabi 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. Lablabi soup is also liked with hardboiled egg or pan fried fish.
This is certainly an amazing experience to have a bowl of Lablabi, the favorite Tunisian chickpeas soup in breakfast when you are touring this wonderful part of Africa.
