This homemade harissa …

I'm not going to lie, there's some delicious store-bought harissa out there. I've almost always got a jar of Mina Harissa in my fridge. But sometimes (lots of the times!) it's fun to make everything from scratch.

Don't worry, if you've got a blender or a food processor, you can make your own harissa paste in a few minutes flat.

Here's what you're going to do:

Put some bell pepper, chili peppers, onion, garlic, tomato paste, oil, and a few spices into your blender. Whizz them around until they're mostly smooth. That's it!

See how ridiculously easy that was?

The recipe makes more than what you'll need for the hummus. You can use the extra in these Roasted Eggplants with Creamy Harissa and Pistachios, Skinny Sweet Potato Harissa Fries, Sticky Harissa Honey Glazed Chicken, Harissa Shakshuka, or this Harissa Butternut Squash Soup.

Scale

Ingredients

Harissa Hummus:

  • 114 ounce can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 13 tablespoons harissa (see notes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (or more, to taste)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon

The Platter:

  • Fresh cut veggies
  • Grilled or toasted bread (gluten-free, if needed)
  • Berries
  • Olives

Homemade Harissa:

  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 chiles de Arbol (small red chilis)
  • 1 tablespoon each: tomato paste and olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon each: cumin, coriander, and sea salt
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon

Instructions

  1. If you're making your own harissa, do that first. Put all the ingredients into your food processor or blender and blend until mostly smooth. Transfer to a jar.
  2. Add the chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, harissa, sea salt, garlic, and lemon juice to your food processor or blender. (No need to clean it first if you've made the harissa!) Blend on high until smooth. Taste and season with more sea salt, if you'd like.
  3. Serve the harissa hummus with lots of fresh veggies and some grilled or toasted bread. Olives and berries are nice additions to the platter!

Notes

Store-bought harissa can vary in spiciness. If you're hesitant about spice, add a little to start then adjust until you get the spiciness level you are comfortable with. I use 3 tablespoons of the homemade harissa. If you're using store-bought harissa, I prefer Mina Harissa.
