Quarantine Cooking - Week 2 - Harissa

March 28, 2020

 Let's make some Harissa. Harissa is a North African chili pepper paste. It's super versatile and easy to make. It adds a ton of flavor to all of your favorite dishes. I don't make mine too hot because I like to add it to several meals. Here's my recipe for Harissa and 7 ways to use it this week to elevate your meals. 




Last week (Week One of Quarantine Cooking) I showed how to take French Bread and make croutons for the entire week to elevate your meals. This week (Week Two of Quarantine Cooking) we are going to make Harissa. Here's the recipe!
