Honey Harissa Chickpeas (Over Labneh!)

Sweet, savory, and melt-in-your-mouth delicious! These honey harissa chickpeas are so easy to whip up that you’ll end up making them… a lot. We topped them over some labneh but it can also work over some hummus or any other creamy dip. Don’t be afraid to use your hands so that you can scoop them out with some warm pita!

One of our latest shakshuka reviews from Azza who used our products in a remote off the grid cabin in Utah 🏔️

“I just wanted to send a quick cheer your way :) I am Tunisian living in Canada and just landed in Denver this morning for a road trip through Utah. My first shopping stop to get ready for my trip was to get Shakshuka haha I can't wait to try out it for breakfast while camping. It was really delicious and my partner's family from the US loved it :)”

Our products are available at over 100 stores throughout the west coast, Midwest, and mountain states!

Our platform has always been a dedicated space for one thing: Celebrating our Tunisian family flavors in a quest to make Tunisian food respected and acknowledged in the US and the world. We want to bring people together doing what we love and what we believe in.

Truthfully, we have been internalizing and processing a lot of emotions over the past couple weeks. We have (unsuccessfully) tried to suppress overwhelming feelings of shock, anger, resentment, sadness, and hopelessness at the even more rapid degradation of the Palestinian condition. There cannot be double standards in the condemnation of the murder of innocent civilians and that should be common sense to anybody who has an ounce of humanity in them.

We will not stop sharing our Tunisian family flavors. That is our way of resisting cultural misrepresentation and erasure. That is our way of tackling the things that we can control.

This week, 100% of our online store proceeds will be going to Palestinian Children’s Relief Fund.

Thank you, for featuring us this week!! Looking back on how Zwïta’s development came about pre-pandemic times feels surreal. It started with a dream and a leap of faith… the rest is history! Read the full section on Zwïta below:

‘Brothers Karim and Mansour Arem, who grew up in Houston and Tunis, always dreamed of doing something with Tunisian food as a family, and COVID-19 proved to be a catalyst.

Mansour was laid off from his job as a brewer at Brooklyn Brewery in New York shortly before the pandemic, he said, and would spend his suddenly free days experimenting with recipes as Karim, who was at IBM, worked from home in their shared apartment. In the evening, they would talk about products, branding and how to communicate with an audience that was largely unfamiliar with Tunisian culture and cuisine.

Then one day in 2020, Mansour took a jar of his homemade harissa (a chili-based condiment) to a party, to accompany the tamales the host had procured. (“Tamales and harissa? Why not?” he figured.) The condiment was a sensation, capturing the attention of the partygoers as well as New York food writer Max Falkowitz, who then interviewed Mansour.

“Have you ever eaten something that smashed all your previous conceptions to smithereens?” Falkowitz wrote in a profile of harissa that sent readers scrambling to the brothers’ new Shopify site, which they had set up to take pre-orders.

Karim and Mansour, who had moved back to Houston to take a job at Karbach Brewery, were stunned by the response.

“I vividly remember being in the cellar at Karbach, cleaning a fermentation tank, and my brother was texting me,” Mansour said. “I checked my phone and was like, ‘What is going on?!’”

A thousand pre-orders had poured in, recalls Karim, who has since left his job at IBM to focus on their company, Zwïta, named after their maternal great-grandmother. For the rest of the year, the brothers say, they’ll be focused on their new contract with H-E-B, which plans to start stocking Zwïta at more than 100 stores in July.

“I’m so happy that we took this leap of faith and this risk,” Karim said.’

BEEF “KAMOUNIA” 🇹🇳

“Kamounia” translates to “Cumin Stew” (“cumin” = “kamoun”). This is our mother’s kamounia that we grew up on; she also makes another version swapping the beef with sheep’s liver instead 🐑

Keep in mind that this kamounia is a bit more simplistic than the more classic version that includes onions, heart, and sheep’s liver 🇹🇳

If your family’s kamounia is different, tell us all
about it in the comment section below!!! 😁

Full recipe is on our website zwitafoods.com in the ‘Recipes’ section 🌶️

PS: This is a throwback video to our early days. It was our first recipe video to ever go viral on TikTok, reaching over 1.4 million views…so we figured it was worth a repost! 📈

01/24/2023

If we want to make real progress in protecting our beautifully unique cultural heritage as Tunisians, we need to be able to call out the fallacies that erase it just to fit in with what is expected or ‘what works’. In an ideal world, we shouldn’t have to prefix ‘Harissa’ with Tunisian in the same way that we never prefix ‘sushi’ with ‘Japanese’, ‘pizza’ with ‘Italian’, or ‘feta’ with ‘Greek’. Obviously, we’re not there…yet!

Look, it’s 2023 and about time we looked at the Maghreb with more respect, depth, and nuance. Realize that the “Moroccan harissa” phenomenon isn’t about Moroccan food, it’s deeper than that. It’s about the role of representation, or the lack thereof, in how a culture can be distorted and perceived. It’s about the power of marketing and how it plays into fantasies, the familiar, and long-held beliefs. It’s about thinking you know something just because you googled it or saw it on TikTok. It’s about prioritizing posting fresh culinary content over doing your due diligence under the guise of culinary fusion and creativity.

Finally, let us emphasize that we have nothing but love for our Moroccan brothers and sisters whose culture is as beautiful, rich, unique and distinct as ours! This is why the issue at hand is as relevant to Tunisians as it is to Moroccans… and everybody else who enjoys our beloved harissa. In fact this is NOT about gate-keeping our foods, Tunisian nationalism, or creating barriers between North Africans…quite the opposite. It’s about acknowledging and celebrating true North African regionality.

If you are talking about harissa, you are talking about Tunisia, period.
