Tunisian Lentil Hotpot

    40 minutes

    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.
