An earthy ketchup with heat…
Making harissa ketchup is about as simple as can be, yet it sure does pack an amazing amount of spice complexity. The harissa mellows the ketchup tang with the earthiness of cumin, coriander, and garlic. Then there’s a subtle grassy cilantro flavor, a hint of mint, and a solid spiciness to boot. This is a delicious option for burgers, turning the everyday patty into something special. Or use it as a dipping sauce for fried foods – it’s a perfect pairing for garlic or sweet potato fries.
You can pick up harissa paste for the store, or make it yourself and control the spice by choosing your dried chilies to fit your perfect amount of spiciness.
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons harissa paste
- Mix ketchup and harissa paste in a bowl until fully combined. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour prior to serving to allow flavors to meld.
