This came from Arabella Boxer's Book of Elegant Cooking and Entertaining. It's from a vegetarian couscous recipe that I've made multiple times. The sauce brings life to the dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all together and serve with couscous.
  2. Hot chilis can be added to taste if a spicier sauce is desired.

This recipe has come in very handy on numerous occasions when I haven't had time to make more involved harissa recipes-(meaning=more ingredients). Thanks for posting!

5 stars for how quick and easy this was. Kind of like a wonderfully different ketchup! Mine turned out quite thick, so I added just a bit more broth. I also added crushed red pepper flakes and let it sit a while for the flavors to blend. Used this as a condiment for Chick Pea Burgers #37560.
