TUNISIAN TAGINE 🇹🇳 with a green harissa sauce 🌱 I got the base of this recipe from a family friend from Tunisia who actually said this dish was called Shaksuka (which translates in Arabic roughly to “all mixed up”) in their country but to keep it simple I thought I’d call it a Tunisian tagine so not to confuse 😅 anyways this was so so good and is my contribution to the 🌎
