Hurrah for Harissa
Following a concersation with my GP last year I am now following a low-fat diet to manage my cholesterol levels.
I am always on the lookout for something to raise my meals above the bland and always chuck in chilli, garlic and whatever else I can lay my hands on.
I have recently discovered the joy of harissa paste - I know I am a bit late to this party. However, after dragging out my magnifying glass, I find that the handy jar from the local supermarket has an alarming amount of sugar so I am off to find some easy recipes to make the stuff myself at home.
Oh Lord, the print is so small on some things I need my magnifying glass, too! I even have one in my rucksack for reading the OS maps as the symbols can be minuscule. I haven't tried Harissa yet...ReplyDelete
Ha, ha. Even though I had cataract ops on each eye a couple of years ago which gave me good vision I do need to resort to the magnifying glass on a lot of the smallest print.Delete
I have found a recipe online to make my own harissa paste so will give it a try - without any sugar!
By the way, thank you so much for commenting. I am new to this blogging malarkey and it is good to know that I am not just talking to myself all the time (although that has been known in real life).
