    GaylaJ's Note:

    Great stuff ... from Mark Bittman's "The Best Recipes in the World". This spread can be served with bread or vegetable sticks, but it is also wonderful as a sandwich ingredient. It can be made hours or even a day in advance, but always let it come back to room temperature before serving.

    1. 1
      Make sure the peppers are without seeds. Combine them in a food processor along with the walnuts, garlic, olive oil, the grated zest of the lemon, and the cumin.
    2. 2
      Pulse to process so the ingredients are pulverized but not pureed; you want a paste, but one with a little texture. (If you are feeling energetic and have a mortar and pestle, you can also process by hand.).
    3. 3
      Transfer the paste to a bowl and add the juice of the lemon, hot red pepper flakes, and salt. Taste and adjust seasoning.
    4. 4
      Serve, or cover and refrigerate for a day or two (bring back to room temperature before serving).

      Muhammara is an amazing and unique spread/dip! Your recipe is wonderful. Next time, I'll try to reduce the number of calories by reducing the olive oil.

      This is very good. Reminds me almost a roasted red pepper hummus taste. I made this first with three medium red peppers and thought it needed just a bit more so added another 1.5 peppers. I ended up using the 2 orange peppers since I ran out of red. I toasted the walnuts first before adding them. Since I increased the peppers a bit I upped the cumin another 1/8 tsp. For the heat I used a couple of sprinkles of cayenne. This is very good with pita and fresh veggies. I used this to round out appetizers for our super bowl party. I had wayyyy too many sour cream/cheese dips and spreads and this was a great break from it. Thanks for the yummy recipe. I can't wait for my vegetarian step daughter to taste it.
