Preheat oven to 200*C | Ovenproof skillet | Bullet blender | Tongs | Toaster

Prepare the ingredients

Cook the base

  • Nestle the garlic bulb in the middle of the tomatoes and peppers
  • Put the pan in the oven and roast for 25 minutes

Prepare the roasted garlic and finish the roast

  • Remove the pan from the oven
  • Use tongs to remove garlic bulb and leave it to cool for a couple of minutes
  • When cool enough to handle, squeeze the roast garlic into the gap in the centre of the pan (if the garlic is still a bit firm microwave it for 2 minutes)
  • Mash the garlic into a puree with the back of a spoon in the centre of the pan
  • Add the harissa to the roast garlic puree
  • Pour the polpa tomatoes over the roast tomatoes and peppers
  • Sprinkle over a little sugar and fold the contents of the pan together with a wooden spoon
