Pour a little stock in the bottom of the blender, add the peppers and onions, Harissa and yoghurt.

Blend until smooth, if too thick add some more stock.

Season to taste and refrigerate to cool.

 

To serve pour into bowls or plates, decorate with the pepper rings and chilli pepper and if desired some crispy spring onions

 

Tips:

You could also use a sjalot onion instead of spring

Normal yoghurt instead of Greek but that’s much thinner, so beware with the stock.

A blender Works best if there’s some liquid in the bottom.
