    I can't find pita chips often, but have naan on hand, so opted for a scramble of harissa eggs and dates with naan on the side. Ate a few like tacos and loved it! My dates were a little old, so I let them plump in some hot water first. This whole dish was so unexpected, I'd never think to add dates to scrambled eggs but now, I feel like this might be on repeat!

    This worked very well for me as a simple scrambled egg dish with the harissa stirred into the eggs and the dates, which I sauteed with shallots, scattered over the top. I would have like to try it as written, and if I ever find gluten-free pita chips, I might.

    I made an approximation of this - used Italian bomba paste that was open, rather than opening harissa. Very tasty combo and the sautéed dates were intoxicating. Only addition I’d make in the future is to dollop on a little yogurt or sour cream.

    The adults in the family loved this (though the kids wouldn't touch it) -- good combo of savory and sweet. Super easy to put together. I reduced the harissa to 1 tablespoon and added some ny shuk matbutcha to make up some of the difference. Served with the Ottolenghi roast cherry tomatoes with yogurt -- a good match. Will repeat.
