I’m a total sucker for “pantry recipes.”

There’s just something about coming up with a recipe entirely from things you have on-hand that make you feel like you’re kicking butt and taking names on a competitive cooking show.

This Muhammara or Red Pepper Walnut Dip is tangy, creamy, and delicious with some simple pita triangles.

I also love it spread onto a sandwich– it’s so much better than mayonnaise!

I also happen to be something of a Egyptophile (uh, is that a word?), so I’m always down for any recipes which claim to be of Egyptian origin.

The only “weird” ingredient for this recipe is going to be the pomegranate molasses.

I wrote about this delicious stuff in this post where I shared my recipe for Fattoush Salad.

Do yourself a favor and add this Mediterranean staple to your pantry!

Ingredients

  • 12- ounce jar roasted red peppers - drained
  • 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 2/3 cup walnut pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic - peeled
  • 3 tablespoons pomegranate molasses
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt

Instructions

  • Add the drained red peppers, bread crumbs, walnuts, garlic, and pomegranate molasses into the bowl of a small food processor. Pulse a few times, then slowly drizzle in the olive oil while continuing to pulse the machine.*
  • Once the mixture is smooth to your liking, taste and add salt as needed. Serve at room temperature with pita bread for dipping.

NOTES

*Keep the lid on the processor while you are doing this - there should be a small reservoir on the lid with a small hole through which you can pour the oil.

  1. This has been my favorite Middle Eastern dip for a long time! Some Middle Eastern grocery stores even sell jarred pureed red pepper paste (basically harissa without all the added spices). Also, I have found that putting in a little tahini (1 tablespoon) really brings out the flavor of the walnuts more. 🙂

    1. Oooh, tahini is a GREAT idea! I think I’ll have to make another batch of this with the excuse that I need to try it with tahini 🙂
