Mhamas – Authentic Tunisian soup
Mhamas, a Tunisian soup, offers one of the classical plates that constitute the Tunisian kitchen.
Tunisians often use this soup as a main course meal. Indeed, thanks to its richness with different compositions and vegetables all combined together, it does make a savory healthy meal it is. And sometimes, it becomes an entree for bigger dishes. However, while Mhamas hails from Tunisia, you can still find it elsewhere, But,if you don’t, just use rice instead! Cut the rice pieces into 2 or 3 smaller pieces to obtain something similar to mhamas, and the fact that it is mainly based on vegetables not the mhamas grains makes it easier to find other replacement for those grains. Now, let’s proceed to the recipe!
2 tbs of concentrated tomato
Half a tbs of mild chilli pepper and half a tbs of hot chilli pepper
¾ tbs of salt
2 cups of vegetable broth
1/4 + 3 tbs of dried mhamas( or rice)
1 carrot cut into small pieces
1/2 cup Chopped parsley
8 cups of water
1 cup chickpeas
In a big cooking pot, verse 2 liters of water, the salt, the concentrated tomato, the Peppers, and the olive oil and the chickpea.
Bring it to boil for 30 minutes under a warm medium fire, then add the carrots
Now add the chopped parsley and the grain and put it on fire for around 15 minutes while stirring it.
Now, enjoy your hot meal!
