Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the pork

  • In a small bowl, stir together the honey and harissa spice blend.
  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning frequently, until starting to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, brush the pork on both sides with the honey-harissa blend, and cook, turning frequently, until the blend is lightly toasted and the pork is still faintly pink within, 2 to 3 minutes. 

Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut into ½-inch-thick slices. While the pork is cooking and resting, prepare the chickpeas and chard.


Prep and cook the chickpeas and chard

  • Rinse the chickpeas.

In another large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chard and Moroccan spice blend and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chard starts to wilt, 2 to 3 minutes. 

Add the chickpeas, tomatoes, and ¼ cup [½ cup] water and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chard stems are softened and the liquid has thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the pork and spiced chickpeas and chard to individual plates and serve.
