rose harissa peanut pesto

My rose harissa peanut pesto is inspired by the flavours of the chilli and spice paste harissa that's widely used in North African and Middle Eastern cooking. My recipe is flavoured with chilli, smoked paprika, caraway, cumin, coriander, garlic, mint & rose water. A warming, fragrant and spicy pesto with a twist. 

Try it mixed into vegetables before roasting, spread on flat-breads, or stirred into thick yogurt as an accompaniment to roast lamb or spicy merguez sausages. 

ingredients:
1/2 cup peeled & roasted peanuts
1-2 long red chilli 
2 medium size tomatoes
1 tsp caraway seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds 
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 cup vegetable/light olive oil 
2-3 tsp rose water 
2-3 cloves garlic 
1 tsp red wine vinegar
small bunch fresh mint
1/2 tsp sea salt (or to taste) 

method:
roast the cumin, caraway and coriander seeds in a dry frying pan until fragrant. Add to a blender/food processor with all the other ingredients and whizz up for a minute or 2 until well mixed. Check for seasoning and add a bit more if necessary. Store in the fridge until ready to use. Best served a few hours after making to allow the flavours to develop.
