My Favorite Ingredient
"Harissa, a spicy North African chili paste, is my latest go-to condiment. You can make your own, but I buy mine at Whole Foods—and a jar lasts forever. Here are three ways I use it."

1. Mix a spoonful with olive oil, lemon juice, and salt, and spread on a toasted baguette; add a fried egg and fresh mozzarella.

2. Thin a few tablespoons with water and use as a glaze for roasted vegetables like butternut squash or sweet potatoes.

3. Serve as a garnish for chicken kebabs or thinly sliced skirt steak. It adds some heat.
