    Never had harissa before so I had nothing to compare it to but this was phenomenal!!! Probably sounds gross because it's a bunch of spices, but I snuck a taste just to try it and omg, I ended up stealing a few spoonfuls. I could have definitely eaten the bowl of it, as odd as I know that sounds. I really hate caraway (and NAF of coriander) and thought this was gonna taste gross, but you can't pick the individual tastes apart. When they are together, they form something totally different & unique

    Wonderful! I didn't have cumin seeds so I just used ground cumin, still turned out great! Also halved the olive oil and it was fine.
