Traditional Muhammara (Syrian Hot Pepper Dip)



Ingredients :

  • 2 sweet bell peppers
  • seeded and quartered
  • 3 slices whole wheat bread
  • crusts removed
  • ¾ cup toasted walnuts
  • chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Aleppo pepper
  • 2 teaspoons pomegranate molasses
  • 1 clove garlic
  • minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • coarsely ground
  • salt to taste
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 pinch sumac powder
  • Methods :

  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven’s broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Place the bell peppers with cut sides down onto the prepared baking sheet; roast under the preheated broiler until the skin of the peppers has blackened and blistered, 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Toast the bread slices in a toaster and let cool; place into a resealable plastic bag, squeeze out air, seal bag, and crush with a rolling pin to make crumbs.
  • Transfer peppers to a bowl and tightly seal with plastic wrap. Set aside until the skins of the peppers are loose, about 15 minutes; remove and discard skins. Mash the peeled peppers with a fork.
  • Combine mashed peppers, bread crumbs, walnuts, lemon juice, Aleppo pepper, pomegranate molasses, garlic, cumin, and salt in a food processor; pulse the mixture a few times to blend before running at lowest setting. Slowly stream olive oil into the pepper mixture as it blends until integrated completely; transfer mixture to a serving dish. Sprinkle sumac over the mixture to serve.
