Tunisian Tomato Soup with Chickpeas and Lentils - Lara

  • 1 cup uncooked chickpeas, soaked overnight (or 1 to 2 cans, 15 ounces each, of chickpeas)
  • Water
  • 1 cup uncooked lentils, rinsed and picked over
  • 1 to 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 or 3 bay leaves
  • 6 cups chopped tomatoes, peeling and seeding optional
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons (or to taste) fresh lemon juice
  • Yogurt (optional)
  • Minced fresh parsley (optional)
  • Currants (optional)

Place the soaked, uncooked chickpeas in a large pot and cover with water by 3 inches. Bring to a boil; lower heat to a simmer, partially cover, and cook 1 hour. (If you’re using canned chickpeas, rinse and drain them, and set them aside.)

Add the lentils and cinnamon stick(s), partially cover again, and cook another 30 minutes, or until the chickpeas and lentils are perfectly tender but not mushy. (If you’re using canned chickpeas, just cook the lentils with the cinnamon stick(s) in 7 cups water until tender, about 30 minutes.) Remove and discard the cinnamon stick, and drain the legumes, reserving the water.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a soup pot or Dutch oven. Add the onion, garlic, salt, turmeric, cumin seeds, ground cumin, and bay leaves. Sauté over medium heat for 15 or 20 minutes, or until the onions are very soft.

Add 6 cups of the reserved cooking water from the lentils (supplement with fresh water if there’s not enough) and the tomatoes, and bring it to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer, partially cover and cook another 15 minutes or so. Fish out and remove the bay leaves.

Stir in chickpeas and lentils and cook about 5 minutes more (but not too much, or the legumes become mushy). Season to taste with black pepper, cayenne, and lemon juice. Serve hot, topped with a dollop of yogurt and a sprinkling of parsley, if desired, and pass a small bowl of currants as well. Enjoy!
