After I submitted my last recipe 'Spicy Tomato and Harissa Soup", on my birthday I was given a huge box by a friend filled with the recipe and all the ingredients you need to make your own harissa. I have drawn all the ingredients that were in that box and written down the recipe. The ingredients are Turkish, Greek, Italian, Dutch, French and Spanish - how international can you get?
This recipe was developed in a nunnery in Puebla, Mexico, to celebrate the country's independence from Spain. It has the colors of the National Flag, green from the chiles, white from the walnut sauce, and red from pomegranate seeds sprinkled as garnish over the chile. The recipe has 35 ingredients but it is not very time consuming, once all the peeling and cleaning is done. It is served in the month of September, the month of independence celebrations, when Poblano chiles are at their best.
Pasta in a garlicy-spicy-creamy sauce - just the thing to warm us up on a cold rainy Pacific Northwest evening. When we pick out a movie, put on our pajamas and cuddle along with the dog (and cat) on our couch, well, life doesn't get much better! Here's another favorite easy-quick-fix family recipe. And while we're confessing about indulgences: sometimes instead of a 4 oz can we'll put in a whole 8 oz can of roasted chilies! We serve this in large mugs with handles for easy eating during the movie.
Every time I have potatoes in the house, I end up making this. Garlic+lemon+chilli = heaven on a plate! It's also a great way to use leftover baked potatoes. Some notes:
• You can fry the diced potatoes instead of baking them. I just avoid frying, myself.
• Hot pepper paste is perfect for this, but you can get quite close to it by using dried chilli flakes (or even cayenne powder) and tomato paste.
• Feel very free with the quantities! Have as much garlic, lemon and chilli as you like. And don't worry if you don't have cilantro/coriander leaves at hand, either, I do without it most of the time.
