The Food Dictator gratefully thanks the amazing @SarahAustin for her tweet singing the praises of our blog – her request for a vegan recipe is gratefully answered with one of our favorite vegan appetizers!
Muhammara is an ancient Syrian dip recipe that deserves to be far better known. Peppers, walnuts, and pomegranate molasses combine with spices and olive oil to create one of the most healthful – and delicious – dips on the planet.
Muhammara originated in Aleppo, Syria, where the famous Aleppo (or Halaby) peppers are grown – an area now sadly savaged by a vicious civil war.
This version of Muhammara is my favorite, coming to you via http://jugalbandi.info – it combines elements from the recipes @ Epicurious, Leite’s Culinaria and Tigers and Strawberries.
