A mild harissa?? Blasphemy I hear you saying. But trust me on this, once you discover how wonderful and subtle the flavour of harissa really is, without the chilli overpowering everything, you’ll never go back.
This recipe has a hint of rosewater in the background, a very moroccan invention, and is wonderful with almost savoury dish.
This includes the lazy mans version, using canned tomato paste, but if you want to be more authentic then roast a red pepper or 2 in the oven, peel, seed, and use instead of the tomato.
