Muhammara Recipe

Muhammara is a savory Middle Eastern dish that originated in Aleppo, Syria. It is a thick and flavorful dip or spread made primarily from red peppers, walnuts, garlic, and olive oil. The key ingredients are roasted red peppers, which give the dish its distinctive color and smoky flavor.

This versatile dish is often served as a mezze (appetizer) and is enjoyed with pita bread, crackers, or as a topping for grilled meats or vegetables.

1. Grill, cook over open flame or fry the bell peppers in a skillet until charred. Put in a paper bag to steam the peppers for 8 minutes, until cool enough to handle

2. Peal the skin from the peppers, core and slice into strips 

3. Put everything into a food processor except the red walnuts and pulse into a rough mix

4. Add the walnuts and pulse to integrate into a rough semi-smooth texture.

When ready to serve top with a nice drizzle of olive oil before dipping with pita.
