Harissa Grilled Vegetables from MarketSpice

Posted July 22, 2014

Harissa is a flavorful North African-Chile blend of spices; MarketSpice's buy-in-bulk blend includes red peppers, cayenne, chili powder, garlic, paprika, coriander, cumin, sea salt and spearmint. It's terrific as a dry rub on meats, in soups and stews, or in veggie recipes. Serves 6

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon harissa seasoning
1 teaspoon water
½ eggplant, sliced
2 zucchinis, sliced lengthwise
½ red onion, cut into wedges
½ yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
½ red bell pepper, sliced thin
2 tomatoes, quartered

1.  Mix the olive oil, harissa seasoning, and water.  This will make a paste.
2. Toss the vegetables in the harissa seasoning paste.
3.  Cook in a grill basket on a hot grill for 15 minutes or until vegetables are cooked to your liking.
