Description

Muhammara is a Middle Eastern dip that originates from Aleppo, Syria. It is traditionally made with breadcrumbs, but can easily be made without. 

Ingredients

1 1/2 cup
walnuts
15 ounces
roasted red peppers (1 jar)
1/2  
lemon juice (juice from 1/2 lemon)
1 bunch
scallion
1/4 cup
pine nuts
1 tablespoon
pomegranate molasses
1 teaspoon
apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon
cumin
1 teaspoon
red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon
pepper, aleppo (or smoked paprika )
   
salt (to taste)
   
black pepper, cracked (to taste )

Instructions

Toast the walnuts lightly until they are aromatic, but not burned. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until fairly smooth. The walnuts probably won’t become perfectly smooth, but you want the texture to be consistent throughout. Adjust seasonings to taste. Serve drizzled with olive oil and enjoy with veggies or pita.
