The kitchen might still be a wreck, but that wasn’t going to stop me from participating in #SundaySupper with a Middle Eastern theme. We all know how much I love Middle Eastern foods, right?
I decided to make a dish that I love, but have never made at home, muhammara. Muhammara is a Syrian dip made with roasted red pepper and walnuts. It tastes great with fresh pita bread. I love the thin pita bread that I find at the local market.
I first had muhammara as part of a platter along with hummus and baba ganoush and I couldn’t get enough of the red one with the crazy name. I still don’t know how to pronounce it correctly, but at least I have a good recipe.
Check out all of the Middle Eastern inspired recipes below. I can’t wait to try all of these.
- 3 roasted red peppers
- ½ cup fresh bread crumbs
- ⅓ cup toasted walnuts
- 2 garlic cloves
- juice of ½ lemon
- 2 teaspoons pomegranate molasses*
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- pinch of salt
- ½ cup olive oil
- In the food processor combine red peppers, bread crumbs, walnuts, garlic, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, cumin, red pepper flakes, salt. Blend together until smooth. While running slowly add in olive oil until combined.
