    DangerBun's Note:

    This is one of the most delicious middle eastern dips you can make, and certainly one of the easiest! Don't be turned off by the inclusion of pomegranate molasses -- it's very easy to make and I've listed 2 simple "recipes" for it. Or you may choose to substitute the pomegranate molasses with grenadine. This dip is sure to be a hit at your next party! Adapted from Gourmet Magazine.

      Wonderfully delicious and so addictive! I have had this at a local Mediterranean restaurant here in town and this is very close to the taste. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will either use less oil or more peppers, crumbs and walnuts as I like it thicker with more texture. Still, it was sooo good!!! Will definitely keep this recipe handy. Thanks for the post.

      We had Muhamarra in a restaurant in Southern California, and were very excited to find this recipe which sounded very close the one the chef described. It is excellent! I had to substitute 1/4 tsp cayenne for the red pepper flakes, and then opted to add 1/4 c chopped onion since the restaurant mentioned onion as one of their ingredients. Super flavor/consistency/color, and it goes well with hummus/pita bread. Or spread on a hearty cracker or on sliced baked chicken. I think it might go well atop cream cheese (for crackers) but have not tried it yet. Thanks, DangerBun for sharing this recipe.

      This is just great! I used purchased pomegranate molasses and jarred roasted red peppers, so the dip came together in a disappeared almost as quickly!
