Muhammara (Roasted Red Pepper and Walnut Dip)

"Muhammara is a Middle Eastern dip made from roasted red peppers and walnuts that’s smoky, sweet, spicy and tangy. Its vibrant reddish orange color makes it a gorgeous dip to serve with pita or Homemade Naan, on top of Juicy Chicken Breast, or as part of a mezze platter."

Recipe Card


  • 3 medium red bell peppers
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons plain breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses
  • 1 teaspoon Aleppo pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Salt, to taste


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut the tops off your peppers, seed and core them, and cut them in half lengthwise. Place peppers, flesh-side up on a baking sheet. Roast peppers for 10 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Use tongs to flip the peppers so they’re skin-side up. Push the peppers down so they lay flat and evenly roast. Roast for another 20 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Place peppers in a brown paper sandwich bag, crumpling up the top so the peppers steam for 10-20 minutes, or until they’re cool enough to touch.

  • Step 4

    Peel the skin off your peppers, and place peeled peppers in a blender or food processor.

  • Step 5

    Add in all other ingredients (walnuts, breadcrumbs, olive oil, pomegranate molasses, Aleppo pepper, garlic, lemon juice, and salt to taste).

  • Step 6

    Blend until almost smooth but not completely smooth. You may need to stop your blender a few times to scrap down the sides.

  • Step 7

    Serve as-is or with some fresh parsley, more walnuts, a drizzle of olive oil or pomegranate molasses, or a sprinkle of Aleppo pepper or pomegranate seeds on top!
