Spicy, Sultry & Award-Winning
BELAZU Ingredient Co.'s Rose Harissa has a slow-burning chilli heat, balanced with sweet smokiness that adds real depth of flavor to any dish. It is one of their signature ingredients and bestsellers, having been developed from a secret recipe back in 1995.
Deep red in color, it is an aromatic, complex, Middle Eastern spice paste, skillfully blended from flavorings including: chili, garlic, and rose petals. In North Africa, harissa is traditionally used to add a piquant kick to stews, soups, and couscous. It also works well stirred into crème fraiche or used in marinades - especially for beef, chicken, and lamb.
BELAZU has been bringing quality ingredients from the Mediterranean to chefs all over the world since 1991. They have also nurtured long-term partnerships with artisanal growers who share the belief that the ingredient is king.

The name Harissa comes from the Arabic harasa, meaning ‘to pound’ or ‘break into pieces'. It is not far from a straight translation of the Italian pestare, to 'pound' or 'crush' - which is where we get the word 'pesto' from.
In addition to using directly onto proteins, vegetables, or grains/legumes, Rose Harissa is a great partner for sauces. Stir into yogurt for a dip or dressing, or stir into a bechamel sauce and layer into your lasagna.
