Recipe Notes


*For a fourth dimension-saving hack, sometimes I similar to purchase the pre-cooked lentils from Trader Joe'sec! Otherwise, I just boil black lentils amongst salted water too a bay leaf for 18-xx minutes or until they're tender, together with drain!

*Harissa paste can vary greatly inward spice degree. I almost oft use the harissa from Trader Joe'sec, in addition to it'sec spicy. ane tablespoon inwards this recipe is nevertheless relatively spicy, and so if y'all don't similar spice, perhaps role half. With other brands of milder harissa, you power have to purpose upwardly to two tablespoons. To live safety, I'd offset amongst 1/ii-1 tablespoon!
