There was a time in my life I was literally addicted to Harissa 🤣 I would make jars of harissa and mix it in with everything.

This is my take on a very simple harissa recipe which was made by my neighbour in Melbourne.

2 cups dried chillies
1/4 cup garlic
1/2 cup EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp caraway seeds
Salt to taste
Juice of one lime
1/4 cup more EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Rehydrate the chillies in hot water
In a blender blitz the chillies and garlic with EVOO.
Set aside.

In a pan roast the dry whole spices and grind with salt.
Mix the red chilli garlic paste with the ground spices and the EVOO, squeeze in the lime and mix well.
Serve with EVERYTHING or wait for my next post of harissa potatoes! 😋
