Instructions

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: You can use sambal oelek or hot chilli sauce instead of harissa. Timesaver: Use the chopping attachment on a food processor to chop onion and celery (use the pulse function so it doesn’t become mushy). Tear the coriander with your hands instead of chopping. Use crushed garlic from a jar or tube instead of fresh garlic.
