Cooking with Tabil
Tabil is used to make a Tunisian grilled pepper and tomato salad called “mechwya” that is often used as a topping for couscous. Be careful, as Tabil is a bit addicting, and you may well find yourself adding a spoonful to just about everything. We’ve used in on flatbreads, as a seasoning for beans, scrambled eggs, grilled chicken, baked fish, slow cooked lamb, hummus, soup, tajines and even popcorn.
What's In Tabil
Tabil is hand blended with garlic, coriander, caraway and red pepper flakes.
What Does Tabil Taste Like?
You’ll first notice the warm, gentle spicy nuttiness of the coriander followed by the roasted garlic flavor, then you’ll pick up some mild heat in the back of your throat, and to finish it off you’ll notice the biting, warm earthiness of the caraway.
