Recipe Ingredients for Muhammara

2 1/5 pounds red bell peppers
1 1/3 cups walnut halves
1 cup unsalted cashews
2 teaspoons cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
2 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Recipe Directions for Muhammara

  1. Makes about 2 cups.

  2. Roast, peel, and deseed the bell peppers using your favorite method. Let cool completely.

  3. Toast the walnuts, cashews, and cumin seeds in a dry skillet until fragrant. Let cool.

  4. In the bowl of a food processor or blender, combine the flesh of the bell peppers with the rest of the ingredients, from walnuts to pomegranate molasses, and purée until smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl regularly. Taste, adjust the seasoning, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  5. What you won't use immediately you can freeze in a freezer-safe container. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly over the surface of the muhammara (to prevent the formation of water crystals), close the container tightly, and freeze. To thaw, just pop back in the fridge the night before.
