Courgette and Harissa Bruschetta


Harissa, a fiery North African seasoning paste based on chilies and spices, gives these simple but exciting appetizers their kick. If you’re not so keen on spicy food you could use fresh tomato or pesto.

Ingredients 5 serves

  • 1 Courgette (medium).
  • 3 tbsps crumbled feta cheese.
  • 2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil.
  • Pepper.
  • Salt.
  • Harissa (About 2 tbsp., paste).
  • 1 baguette (10 slices, brushed with olive oil and grilled).


Heat grill to high. Slice courgette lengthwise and grill, turning once, until grill marks appear, about 4 minutes. Let cool, then chop. In a bowl, combine courgette with feta and oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Spread about 1/2 tsp. prepared harissa on each baguette toast and top each with about 1 tbsp. courgette mixture.
