I’ve made this twice recently and it is really good! I grow mustard greens and picked them young, so I didn’t think I’d need to blanch them. Instead I just added them with the garlic and olive oil to wilt them then blended it all up. It’s really good on grilled fish and burgers!

Wondering if this would freeze well or not.

Thanks! Anything that says harissa gets me excited, so being able to freeze it will be a great help.

Greens, any kind, can be simple to make. I'm Italian and the way my grandmother always cooked them was to rinse them and throw in a pot or deep skillet with a bit of water to sauté/steam them (lid on or slightly open). Once tender add chopped or minced garlic, sea salt, ground pepper. When garlic is cooked, turn heat to low, add enough olive oil to lightly coat the greens, warm the mixture and turn off burner. That's it. We just had mustard greens from the garden prepared this way two days ago. Delicious as always. You can do this with any greens, from Swiss chard to spinach to dandelion. My grandparents used to get dandelion greens from their neighbors lawns, much to the embarrassment of my mom!

I served this with beef. Our guests raved about it. The bowl looked like it had been licked clean and several asked for the recipe.

I'd like to make some as gifts - would this stuff be suitable for canning?

I don't think there's enough acid to safely water-bath can this, unfortunately.

I've been wanting to try this for a while now and finally did today. I'm taking it to an event tomorrow but wow, what a fabulous sauce! I'm only sorry I didn't try it sooner.

i just made this and glad i did. tastes great. but i take issue with one of your instructions: i pureed until smooth and now it looks nothing like the picture. it is even a bit emulsified from the oil. looks much more like a pesto. should've figured out myself that was going to happen. i might try not using the blender next time. nonetheless, it was great tossed with spaghetti squash and feta!

I just have the ground cumin and coriander - how do I substitute? This sounds great to use in my tagine recipes!

It's tough to give an exact conversion, but I would start with about half the amount of each, and toast them lightly in the pan to bring out the flavor. Hope you like it! Your tagines sound like great places for it to go.
