Recipe: The Cisrà. The tripe and chickpeas soup typical of the Langhe

The Cisrà is a typical dish of the Langhe area, in Piedmont, based on chickpeas and tripe. This soup was originally prepared with dark chickpeas of Middle Eastern origin. Today we prefer italian chickpeas, which are much tastier. This poor dish has very ancient origins and it is said that during the feasts dedicated to the saints, this dish was distributed, still warm and steaming, to the faithful.

Ingredients

  • 400g Tripe
  • 200g Dried chickpeas
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Leeks
  • 2 potatoes
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • ½ Cabbage
  • 1 Sprig of rosemary
  • pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt

Method

We start the night before by putting the chickpeas to soak in a bowl full of water. The next morning we drain the chickpeas and let them dry on a cloth. Peel the potatoes and cut them into small cubes. We cut the cabbage into small pieces. Now, take a saucepan and pour a little extra virgin olive oil and add the chopped onion and the two leeks cut into rounds. Add the chopped celery and the rosemary. Let's begin to fry the onion, celery and leeks until they are browned. At this point add the diced potatoes and the cabbage browning for five minutes. The cabbage should release a little water, otherwise add a little to prevent it from burning. Now add the tripe cut into pieces and the chickpeas. Fill the saucepan with plenty of water and adjust the salt taste. We close the saucepan and keep cooking for about three hours, stirring occasionally and checking that the water does not reduce too much. Otherwise add a bit.
When cooked, remove the lid and let it dry at will. Once ready, we serve the Cisrà very hot, garnished with fresh rosemary and a good scratch of black pepper.
