Green Harissa Recipe

This is great stuff to add to all sorts of things. Try it in a wrap or on eggs. Put it as a sauce on top of protein. Stir it in a casserole or mix into veggies while they roast. Yesterday we had it on salmon burgers.

Consider it something to have on hand in your refrigerator or freezer. I freeze mine in a tiny tart pan and then pop them into a ziplock bag in the freezer, but an extra ice cube tray would work as well. It will also last a long time in the refrigerator.

In the last photo below, you can see three frozen clumps of it, with three pats of butter, on some miscellaneous veggies before I popped them into the oven to roast. It was amazing!

Put the coriander and cumin seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat and toasted them, stirring until golden but not brown.
