Harisa with chips

Harissa is a North African spice and herb mix. It can go from being very hot and spicy through to being sweet, mild and herbaceous.

This recipe is on the sweet side with no spice or heat and lots of herbs.

You can add chillis to it if you like heat.

You can also use lime juice instead of lemon or both.

It is great with fries, roasted vegetables, as a salad dressing or in a sandwich.


  • 5g garlic cloves
  • 25g coriander (leaves stalks and roots)
  • 10g mint leaves
  • 10g parsley leaves
  • 30g tomato paste
  • 30g brown sugar
  • 50ml lemon juice
  • 60ml olive oil
  • 30g tomato chutney or tomato sauce
  • black pepper and sea salt to taste


Cut the coriander up very fine.

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until it is a smooth saucy paste.

Season with a little sea salt and black pepper.
