Home-Made Harissa: An Anti-Inflammatory Condiment


Harissa is a spice paste from North Africa made with peppers, tomatoes, garlic, and cumin. You can buy it in well-stocked grocery stores but it's easy and inexpensive to make yourself. Built around some basic ingredients, recipes for harissa can vary from region to region or even family to family. In mine you'll find a bit of turmeric and black pepper to maximize the antioxidant and anti-cancer benefits inherent in this healthy condiment.
