Lablabi is the ultimate Tunisian comfort food, served up piping hot in home kitchens and countless stalls throughout the countryside. This hearty, warming dish consists of chick peas in a garlic and cumin-infused broth, served over small pieces of crusty bread and garnished with a decadent runny egg. Dali’s deluxe version features capers and tuna (or optionally, cracked green olives for vegetarians), along with his homemade harissa (tunisian hot sauce), olive oil, parsley and a lemon wedge.
