This vegetarian dish from North Africa is packed with protein from kidney beans, lentils and chick peas. Tunisian spice mix is a blend of cinnamon, turmeric, nutmeg and a few other spices. I think “Herbie’s Spice” makes the best Tunisian spice mix. This dish is great served with flatbread.
Sautee onion, celery and carrots in oil for 2-3 minutes. Add Tunisian spice and potatoes, fry until fragrant.
Add 1 cup of stock and tomatoes simmer 5 minutes. Add lentils, beans, chickpeas and remaining liquid. Bring to simmer, add pasta and cook 10 minutes or until cooked adding more water to desired consistency.
