Muhammara ~ A Walnut, Bell Pepper Dip Recipe

Here is a variation of a favorite dip/spread/sauce of ours that we've been enjoying for a couple years now.  Muhammara is a wonderful dip for veggies, sauce for meat, pizzas, and sandwiches, and spread for toasts.  I'm surprised it hasn't caught on as much as hummus has; it's soverytasty and easy to make (not to mention incredibly nourishing).

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth (little lumps are fine).  Allowing it to chill for a couple hours helps bring the flavors out.


  1. This looks interesting. Not sure where to find pomegranate molasses though. Is there a substitute?

  2. You can find pomegranate molasses at Arabic or Persian markets or on Amazon. There's a link to it in the list of recipes above.

  3. Hi, I am a new reader but I'm really enjoying reading your blog. Thank you so much for going to the hassle of writing everything down for other people. Please know you are blessing me and my family :) So, here's my question...we live in Siberia, Russia and don't have any Arabic/Persian markets for sure, can you think of anything at all I could substitute the molasses for?? I feel bad asking a second time since you sort of answered already. Thanks again! Ciara.


I value your feedback. Thanks for taking the time to share yours!
