Red Pepper Dip Recipe

Thursday, April 5th, 2012


I just tried Muhammara for the first time last month when I was in Iowa for my Live Food Demo. Muhammara is a Middle Eastern red pepper spread that is spicy, garlicky, healthy and delicious! A friend of mine shared this recipe with me and I loved it so much that I wanted to share it with you!!

You’ll need:

  • 7 ounces red bell pepper (about 2 medium sized peppers)
  • 1 slice of Ezekiel bread toasted very well then torn into pieces (we’re using this as a substitute for breadcrumbs). You could also use 1/4 cup of Food For Life sprouted wheat cereal.
  • 1/4 cup raw walnuts
  • 1 Tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Molasses
  • 1 tsp Cranberry Juice
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt to taste

Simply add all ingredients to a food processor and combine until smooth, about 1-2 minutes. For this recipe I used a Cuisinart Smart Stick mini food processor available through Amazon.

Muhammara is typically served with pita chips but I typically stay away from wheat products so I used veggies: sliced red peppers, carrots, celery, cucumber and Mary’s Gone Crackers instead. It was also be a great addition to a veggie sandwich!!

This spread is absolutely delicious and so easy to make! You can also keep the recipe entirely raw by adding another 1/4 cup walnuts instead of the toasted Ezekiel bread, it’s up to you!!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did!! You’ve simply got to try it for yourself!

    Wow, this sound delish! I’ve been making my own red pepper dip inspired by the one from ‘Hail Mary’ which is basically just red peppers, macadamia nuts, and lime juice to taste but this one sounds so much more exotic!

        It was in the second movie…the one where she meets Aiden in the spice Suq and invites her to meet him for dinner…”my hotel has the best muhamarra in town”…and Carrie played with fire!

            Greetings, Linda ~ I’m on an anti-inflammatory diet and staying away from wheat. Any suggestions about a non-wheat substitute for the bread crumbs? Thank you!
