From 'The Language of Baklava'. For best flavor, use fresh bell peppers and not jarred.

How to Make Magical Muhammara

Step-by-Step

  1. Note: I use Aleppo powder for many of my Middle Eastern recipes.
  2. Place all the ingredients *except* for the flat leaf parsley in a food processor. Puree until smooth.
  3. Transfer the muhammara to a non-reactive serving bowl or platter. Cover and chill several hours to allow the flavor to enhance.
  4. Before serving, garnish the top with a drizzle of olive oil and garnish with flat leaf parsley. Serve at room temperature with Arabic bread, pita chips, slices of French bread or similar.


    Really good served with a bowl of lebeneh on the side!
