Regular readers will know that we’re always looking for new ways to make carb loading exciting. Here’s another – ditch the bland pasta and perk your carbing up with these Harissa Roasted New Potatoes. They add a bit of zing to breakfast, lunch and dinner and they pack a pow in your picnic. Easy to make too, which you know we like.
There’s a great – and easy peasy – recipe for harrisa paste in our Moroccan Chickpea Tagine recipe (which is mega-delicious, btw). You can use shop bought if you’re pressed for time though.
