Spicy harissa paste from North Africa caters for that certain extra in the walnut couscous dish.
Recipe developed by Heiko Antoniewicz for the California Walnut Commission 2020.
Mix vegetable broth and parsley in a blender to create parsley water, pour over couscous and allow to marinate overnight. Using your fingers, break up the couscous, fold in the chopped walnuts, and season to taste with salt and lemon juice.
According to desired level of spiciness, season yoghurt with harissa paste, salt and lemon juice.
Brown the walnuts in a pot with a thin layer of olive oil. Add shallots and garlic and brown slightly. Add tomato paste and remove from stove. Season with harissa, lemon juice and salt, and fold in parsley.
