Tunisian Harissa
Servings: 8

Harissa is a blend of spices with red pepper and garlic. Its consistency is like tomato paste. It is used in Tunisia and Algeria, and probably all over North Africa, to add rich, spicy, hot flavor to prepared food. It's also used as a snack, spread on french bread (or other bread) that has been spread with olive oil. You can use harissa in many other dishes, just to spice things up!
