Harissa is a versatile condiment that can be used to add a punch of spice to anything. This version is made with dried chilies and can be used as a spice rub or hydrated with water for a paste that’s ready to stir into dressings, sauces, and more. This is a stripped-down, entry-level harissa that can be jazzed up with other spices or aromatics such as garlic, citrus zest, or even saffron.
