Roasted Lamb Loin with Mina Green Harissa

When I think about weeknight dinners and how to make them both easy and elevated, Mina comes to mind. I prefer everything homemade and have been a Harissa lover ever since I stumbled upon it in Sami Tamimi’s cookbook, Jerusalem. This North African condiment quite simply makes me happy – it is absolute soul food at its best. While I love the art of chopping the tomatoes, peppers, and spices, it is time consuming and labor intensive, so imagine my delight when I discovered Mina’s Harissa. It tasted as if it had been created in a grandmother’s kitchen. Rather than a paste, it’s an actual homestyle Harissa – and such began my love affair with Mina.

    This looks so amazing- I saw it on Insta- but it’s definitely drool worthy as it’s made my mouth water both times 🙂

    Have a great weekend Teri!

  3. I actually bought their harissa from the fresh market and I love it! 🙂

  4. I used the red hot Mina on a roasted pork shoulder with cannellini beans. So delicious!! I’d love to try the others.

  5. I’m really anxious to try this recipe and this line of products as I’ve not cooked with them before
