Hi Everyone! Happy Friday! What are your plans for the weekend?
Today I am going to share something a little different with you although it is still a dip which should be no surprise to anyone! Muhammara is a middle eastern dish that is quite unique and may not be for everyone but I thought it was so good! I love roasted red peppers and combined with walnuts and breadcrumbs really made it standout. Keep reading for recipe!
Prep Time: 10 minutes/ Cook Time: 25 minutes/ T0TAL TIME: 35 minutes
Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Plant Based/Vegan/Dips/Snacks
*3 Tbsp of Pomegranate Juice
*3 Whole Red Bell Peppers (Skin On)
*3 Tbsp of Gluten Free Bread Crumbs
*1/2 tsp of Ground Cumin
*1 tsp of Salt (Plus More to Taste)
*1 Clove of Garlic (Minced)
*1/2 Cup of Raw Walnuts
*1 Tbsp of Olive Oil
*2 Tbsp of Lemon Juice
*1/2 tsp of Chili Flakes (add more depending on preference) plus some for garnish
*Preheat oven to 450 Fahrenheit
*Place whole peppers on a parchment lined baking sheet,drizzle with olive oil. Roast peppers for 25 minutes, rotating half way through or until peppers have blackened and skin has withered. Take peppers out of the oven, cut the stems off the top and remove the innards, let cool.
*In a high speed food processor add the pomegranate juice, gluten free bread crumbs, cumin, salt, garlic, walnuts, olive oil, lemon juice and chili flakes. Pulse to combine. Add the roasted red peppers and pulse a couple more times. You want it to have a thicker consistency so do not fully process!
*Add dip into a bowl, add chili flakes for the garnish on top. Serve immediately with veggies, gluten free pita or crackers. Enjoy!
**Dip is best served fresh, but will last in the fridge for up to 3 days.
I hope that you have enjoyed this recipe! This is so easy to make as all you do once the peppers are cooked is throw all the ingredients into a food processor! It has a kick of heat with the chili flakes but also a sweetness with the roasted peppers and pomegranate juice. It is definitely a unique taste but I recommend it if you are looking for something new to make, I will absolutely be making this again!
