Indian Style Baked Eggs with Green Harissa + Naan.
I have something SO very GREEN for us today.
I know Friday was all about indulgent…meaning, butter, sugar, peanut butter and chocolate, but today I have got us all back on track, with a little metabolism boosting green harissa.
But really, isn’t this SO green? How could it not be packed full of healthy ingredients?
AND wait until you see what I have to pair with this spicy green harissa….tomorrow.
So a while back I asked you guys what recipes you wanted to see this year and as it turns out, just about everyone is on the same page.
Indian food, please! Totally fine by me because I love Indian food. In fact I already had this recipe planned before I even asked you guys, so clearly I was a happy camper to read your comments that you’d like to see more Indian food.
Green harissa is a lot like the more traditional red harissa in that they are both spicy, but their flavors are pretty different. I have made red harissa before and it’s basically all peppers and spices (it’s delish!). Green harissa is a combo of jalapeno, cilantro, parsley and cumin. Some people add a few other spices or even spinach for more color, I actually added some green olives…they’re not traditional, but they’re so good!
Green harissa is so quick and easy to make AND I pretty much had all the ingredients on hand. YES.
Ok, but as you might have guessed, I have to admit I made this green harissa with another recipe in mind…
So make this today as a Sunday prep and you’ll be ready to go for Monday. Sound good?

Wow delicious In addition to healthy, that is the most important to maintain good shape. Congratulations! Your blog is packed with wonderful recipes … I even write down and do some …..
Wow thanks so much (:
Maybe a silly question, but would you still toast the cumin if you used powder instead of seeds?
If you can’t find jalapenos could i use regular green peppers?
HI!! the Jalapeños sadly can not be substituted they are to vital for the spice! I hope you can find them and try!!
I just made red harissa today as part of a birthday gift bag for my daughter! This green magic looks wonderful! My next food prosser recipe for sure. Thank you for continuing to inspire. ( I want a sink like yours and that stove, oh my!)
Just searched for this recipe after eating it at Lola in Seattle. This was amazing. We ate an entire batch at dinner tonight and now I am making more to refrigerate. Fantastic recipe.
Hi this recipe looks delish, but I’m Indian and I don’t think harissa is Indian? I think it’s Middle Eastern.
Hey Lola! Yup, Harissa is middle eastern.
Sounds like it’s a great dip! But just wanted to give you the heads up that harissa is Middle Eastern and not Indian.
This looks so delicious! I love cumin and I actually just made my own favorite recipe for a blogpost this week: falafel. But I can’t always do the same, so I was looking for something new and exotic with cumin and I think you just presented me with the perfect solution! Thank you 😉
Thank you so much!! Hope you get to try this!
I love this recipe, Tieghan! I’m head over heel with Indian food, and I even bought bunch of spices to cook more Indian at home. So thank you for sharing it. 🙂
Oh awesome!! Hope you love this! 🙂
I love Indian food. I love love love green harissa but have never made it myself. I can not wait to try this recipe.

Can’t wait to see what you did with this harissa, it looks so good!
