Why not put a global spin on Thanksgiving this year with my Harissa Maple Glazed Carrot recipe from my new cookbook “Katie Chin’s Global Family Cookbook”!!   I just made this sweet, smoky and spicy Harissa Maple Glazed Carrot dish on KTLA!  Harissa paste is a Tunisian red pepper paste made with red bell pepper, chili peppers, olive oil, spices and vinegar and is simply divine when combined with maple syrup, garlic, cumin and olive oil  My friend Jodi who tested this recipe for me said it tasted just like candy filled with layers of sweet heat.

Hope you enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving to all!!
