Recipe - Muhammara (Red Pepper and Walnut Dip)


This reminded me of the Abkhazia walnut sauce.  Probably because of the walnuts.  And because the countries aren't too far away from each other.

Muhammara (Red Pepper and Walnut Dip)

Ingredients

2 large red bell peppers, roasted and skinned
1 small fresno pepper
1 slice crumbled bread (use vegan bread to make this vegan)
1 cup walnuts, toasted
1 T garlic
1/2 t asafedida powder (I didn't use this)
1 1/2 T pomegranate molasses
2 T lemon juice
1/2 t sea salt
3 T olive oil

Directions

Combine in food processor (I used my trusty immersion blender).
Serve either chilled or at room temperature
