Ingredients

  • 2 red bell peppers, washed
  • 1 cup toasted walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons aleppo pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • optional garnish: pomegranate seeds, flat parsley, and pomegranate molasses

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Slice the red bell peppers in half lengthwise and remove the core and seeds. Brush the insides and outsides with olive oil, then place cut side down on the baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes, or until peppers have some char on them and have sweated out most of their moisture. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. In a food processor or high speed blender, pulse the roasted red peppers, toasted walnuts, pomegranate molasses, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, salt, and aleppo pepper flakes until mixture resembles course sand. You want to leave in some texture here — don’t pulse too much or the dip will become too smooth.
  5. Remove from food processor and stir in bread crumbs. Garnish with a drizzle of pomegranate molasses, pomegranate seeds, and a sprig of flat parsley. Serve alongside chopped carrots and cucumbers, crackers, or pita bread!
