An Interview With Mina Harissa and a Moroccan Tagine Giveaway

Most people who love North African food are well aware of the flavor profile of harissa, that somewhat spicy {or hot} red chili pepper paste used as a condiment or dip in many Moroccan and Tunisian dishes.

CLOSED: Spice Up Your Life with this Harissa Giveaway!

Have you ever had harissa, that hot and spicy condiment made red by combining chili peppers, garlic and perhaps some dry-roasted spices, then thrown into North African soups and stews for added flavor?

I liken harissa to the French pistou of North African cusine because, much like pistou, it is typically added to finished dishes for the fresh and pungent flavor it provides, to top off soups and stews, yet I would be perfectly happy dipping fresh rustic bread into a spoon of harissa (or pistou).

I recently taught a cooking class where we made a classic Moroccan dish: Chicken Tagine with Olives and Preserved Lemons, served with Couscous. We also made a homemade harissa to add to the tagine once it was on our plates, but with a new product on the market that offers harissa in a jar, made with healthy, high-quality ingredients, you could cut your cooking time down a bit while still incorporating a wonderful condiment into your dish.
