Muhammara is a dip or spread made with roasted red peppers, walnuts, pomegranate molasses. It is savory, nutty, spicy and sweet! Use as a dip or a spread on just about anything!
I chose this particular recipe, adapted somewhat from May 2019 Bon Appetit because you just toss all the ingredients into a food processor (or blender) and pulse away until it reaches the consistency you like.
Make the Muhammara
1. If you can’t find Pomegranate Molasses, you can make your own by reducing 4 cups of Pomegranate Juice over medium-low heat. Just bring to a simmer, and once bubbles begin to form in the middle of the pan, reduce heat to low or Medium-low to maintain that level of simmer. Reduce volume to 1 1/2 – 2 cups. This takes 45-60 minutes in my experience.
2. You can also toast walnuts in a 350F oven for 7-10 minutes, but, as with the pan, watch carefully so they don’t burn.
