Harissa-Jerk Sweet Bell Dipping Sauce

This sauce is great dolloped over curry rice or baked potatoes, tossed with warm pasta, used as a dip for roasted or raw vegetables, swirled into hummus or just enjoyed as a made-for-everything condiment.  For those of you who avoid oils or practice a whole food eating style, you may swap out the olive oil and replace it with an avocado and a splash of water to reach the consistency that you desire. You may also choose to add a roasted hot pepper if you want to achieve a spicier sauce.


2 Roasted Sweet Bell Peppers, skinned and seeded

¼ c. Olive Oil

4 tsp. Harissa-Jerk

2 tsp. Lemon or Lime Juice

2 tsp. Maple Syrup

½ tsp. Salt


Place the ingredients in a high-powered blender and puree until creamy.
