It sounds tasty!
I love the idea of serving with flatbread….. a great way to let guests dig in and create their own given the beautifully cooked ingredients.
I have never used harissa powder…. is the result the same as using or making your own paste?
Thanks, Stuart. That’s the idea serving it this way. When comparing the harissa powder to the paste, I think making your own paste is much better than the powder form. It gives a more intense and spicy flavor if that’s your preference.
Awesome job! Look forward cooking this one!
It was really delicious and healthy!
