The recipe breakdown originally appeared in The Mouthful, our weekly food newsletter for the curious home cook.

This Mediterranean dip is usually made with fresh roasted red peppers, but this version uses the jarred condiment for an instant version for when you need a satisfying side or snack.

  • Red pepper dip

    • roasted red pepper condiment
      2 parts
    • walnuts
      1/2 part
    • breadcrumbs
      1/2 part
    • olive oil
      1/2 part
    • pomegranate molasses
      1/2 part

  • For serving

    • crackers
    • pita bread
    • raw vegetables


Step 1: Blend, adjust, & serve

Blend all muhammara components until smooth. Adjust with more salt and flavor adjusters to preference. The texture should resemble hummus — thicken it up with more nuts/breadcrumbs, or thin it out with water.

Serve with crackers, pita, raw vegetables, or even on a sandwich as a condiment!
