"Green Eggs and Ham was the story of my life. I wouldn't eat a thing when I was a kid, but Dr. Seuss inspired me to try cauliflower!" -Jim Carrey

The refrigerator light goes on...

There are a wide variety of harissa on the market and it can be a bit of a challenge to find even in this day and age. It is worth the hunt, however. The North African chili paste is made from red peppers, garlic, and a variety of hot chilies. The flavor can range from mild to quite spicy and it is one of those condiments that should absolutely be in your refrigerator. It takes just a little to add a sweet spiciness to almost any dish, with nice undertones of umami from the roasted red peppers.
