This recipe was born from Meg’s passionate love of harissa (she puts it in everything!). And what is harissa, you ask? It’s a spicy North African chili paste made of roasted red peppers, hot chili peppers, garlic, spices and herbs. It’s very versatile and can be added to all sorts of dishes: couscous, tagines, hummus, stews, soups, vinaigrettes, etc. A little bit goes a long way, so it’s economical as well. It’s sold in specialty food stores and many large groceries store chains. You can also purchase it online.
Our sweet and spicy harissa chickpea recipe can be made on its own or added to other dishes for a burst of flavor and added protein. We love to use it as a topping for our Spinach Chickpea Crepes.
