Harissa Hummus

Harissa Hummus

North African Harissa is the perfect accompaniment to a standard hummus. Use the recipe below or simply mix it into plain store-bought hummus to mix things up for company or everyday snacking. I love this with fresh veggies or topped with fresh feta and sautéed zucchini. 



  1. To make the hummus, place chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, Harissa, garlic and lemon juice in a food processor along with a couple pinches of salt.
  2. Process until mostly smooth.
  3. If the hummus gets too thick while processing, stream in water bit-by-bit until you reach a creamy texture. Season to taste with additional salt, Harissa and lemon juice.
  4. Serve with crostini, pitas, or veggies.
  5. Optional: Top with sautéed zucchini, crumbled feta, cilantro leaves, or Aleppo Chile flakes.
