Harissa

 A friend from Oregon taught me this sauce-she makes it with roasted red bell peppers. I have seen it made with dried peppers, such as red New Mexican chiles and guajillo peppers. It is delicious on ANY thing but I am making it for my black eyed pea falafels! You can make it in a mortar and pestle which is more traditional than the food processor, which is easier.

2 Roasted Red Bell Peppers

2 Garlic cloves

1/2 t. Cumin

1/2 t. Coriander, ground

1/4 t.Cayenne

Salt and Pepper to taste

Lemon Juice to taste

1-2 T.Extra Virgin Olive Oil

optional: I have seen ground caraway as an addition but have not been brave enough to try it!
