    Sealy's Note:

    I saw this recipe from a local magazine and was thrilled to see that it is the same recipe used in the best Mediterranian restaurant in town!!! The chef deigned to release the recipe, hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Here is the excerpt from the magazine: Moohammara is a tradition Lebanese appetizer, though it's less well known that its cousin, hummus. The nuts, red peppers and pomegrante give it a unique texture and a sweet, tangy taste that goes well with a variety of dipping foods. The recipe comes courtesty of Aida Abboud, chef and owner of Aida's Mediterranean Bistro. Abboud has been cooking up Mediterranean delicacies for 14 years.

      Excellent. I wasn't sure what pomegrante molasses was, and I used pomegranate syrup instead. I doubled the olive oil and did not use vegetable oil. I was thrilled with the health aspects of this dish. Walnuts are high in omega 3 and pomegrantes are a great source of anti-oxidents. Very attractive pink color.
