Harissa is hot pepper sauce from North Africa. It works well as a baste, dip or marinade. If you cannot get asafoetida powder use garlic instead.


  1. Place the chilies in a processor and chop until coarsely ground.
  2. Add the other ingredients and process until smooth.
  3. Thin with rapeseed oil if required.

I used this sauce with Couscous and 6 Vegetables. It was the perfect compliment. Hot but not so hot that it killed the taste buds. But, a little does go a long way.
