In case you’re new here, you can expect to see harissa (hot chili pepper paste) in many of my recipes. It’s the ideal base for a marinade, and makes the most delicious sauces to serve over veggies or proteins.
How to make harissa roasted potatoes
Season baby potatoes
Cut baby potatoes into quarters and toss them in olive oil and a mix of spices. You’ll need paprika, smoked paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt & pepper
Roast the potatoes
Bake the potatoes on 400 F for 40-45 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Prepare the harissa date sauce
Combine harissa paste, date syrup and chopped parsley to make your 3-ingredient harissa date sauce

If preparing ahead of time, I suggest roasted the potatoes first, reheating them when ready to serve, then mixing them with the harissa sauce.
