Muhammara Recipe


Muhammara is a traditional Middle Eastern spread made of roasted bell peppers and ground walnuts. Add it to your repertoire for a summer party vegan dip. My version is adapted from Chocolate and Zucchini.

  • 5 large red bell peppers, grilled or roasted
  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons whole cumin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 cloves garlic, roasted
  • 2 teaspoons walnut or olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Toast the walnuts and cumin seeds in a dry skillet until fragrant.

Combine all ingredients in your blender.

Serve with cucumber slices for dipping or pita triangles.
