On a cold winter’s day in Tunisia, you’ll see plenty of people line up for this delicious soup. Leblebi is the Turkish word for chick pea, and the Tunisians adopted the word from them. The soup is all chickpea, but on top of it you layer all sorts of toppings from egg to pepper paste (Harissa)  and garnished with a few olives. It’s truly a Tunisian delicacy.
