A classic recipe for Muhammara, a roasted red pepper spread with a spicy, sweet, tangy, garlicky, and smoky flavor.Author: Lands & FlavorsINGREDIENTS4 red bell peppers (roasted, peeled, and seeded)2 cloves garlic¾ cup walnuts½ cup bread crumbs½ cup parsley4 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil2 Tablespoons pomegranate molasses4 teaspoons lemon juice1 teaspoon salt1 teaspoon cumin1 teaspoon coriander1½ teaspoons red pepper flakes or ½ teaspoon cayenne pepperblack pepper, to tasteINSTRUCTIONSPlace the peppers on a parchment-lined baking sheet and drizzle lightly with some oil. Put the tray into a hot oven (450°F) or under the broiler until the peppers' skins blister and darken. When the peppers are roasted, remove from the oven, place them into a bowl, and cover it for 10 minutes.After 10 minutes the skins will have loosened. Remove the skins and all of the seeds--you only want the flesh of the peppers.Put the roasted peppers into a food processor with the garlic and purée until smooth.Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and blend just until smooth.Taste the muhammara for seasoning and serve with a drizzle of olive oil on top.NOTES-You can use jarred roasted peppers. Just rinse the brine off of them and proceed with the recipe.
-Make it as spicy as you want by adding more cayenne pepper or leave it out entirely for a mild muhammara.
