Hi folks! It’s another Recipe Wednesday and we are excited to bring you another yummy recipe. We do hope you have enjoyed our recipes so far and you look forward to each Wednesday like we do at Afro Tourism (yeah, you can tell we are foodies right?). This week we will be preparing something simple, Leblabi Tunisian chickpea soup.
Our destination this week is the city of Sfax, also referred to as Tunisia’s second city, after Tunis the capital. It is known for its fishing port (largest in Tunisia), olive oil production as well as import and export of trade goods. To see more of this city, click here.
If you are ready, whip out your utensils and let’s get cooking.
Cooking time: 40 minutes
Serves: 8 people
2 tbsp olive oil
5 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp ground oregano
2 cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed

In a large sauce pan, sauté the garlic and the jalapenos in the olive oil until the garlic turns golden brown.
Add the caraway and oregano and stir for a few minutes. Now add the chickpeas, broth and water. Simmer for twenty minutes.
