Quick & Easy Muhammara

Kick the hummus & baba ghannoush to the side—Muhammara has taken over. With a base of walnuts & red bell peppers, this Syrian side dish is a great vegan compliment to any appetizer, snack, or meal. Use to dip with veggies or eat alongside grilled protein—this tangy, nutty dish will satisfy even the pickiest eater with its warm, inviting colors.


Prep time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4

3 big, red, deep red bell peppers OR a 24 ounce jar of roasted red peppers
1 cup walnuts
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 small onion
1/3 teaspoon Aleppo pepper or red pepper paste
1/2 c. bread crumbs (about 4 كعك)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar

Add red bell peppers to food processor and process until very fine. Repeat this step with the walnuts, onion, and breadcrumbs. Make sure processor is dry when adding breadcrumbs to avoid breadcrumbs sticking to the bowl.

Add all ingredients above together in a bowl. Add crushed garlic cloves and oil and mix well. Season with aleppo pepper, salt & sugar.
