Muhammara

This delicate spicy red pepper spread has its roots in Lebanon and North Africa. It goes great with bread and pita. This recipe is from Chez Nous chef-owner Stacy Simonson, who designed White Elm Café & Bakery's menu. For your holiday party, spread muhammara on a sliced baguette and top it with creamy feta. 

Ingredients: 

2 (12 ounces) jars of roasted red peppers
1 cup walnut 
½ cup breadcrumbs 
¼ cup chopped garlic
4 Tablespoons pomegranate juice
2 teaspoons molasses
1 teaspoon salt

Recipe directions: 

In a food processor, chop red peppers for 20-30 seconds. Add walnuts, breadcrumbs, garlic, pomegranate juice, molasses, and salt. Continue to process until you have a semi-smooth consistency. Don't over process, and you'll want a little bit of texture to the spread. Season with more salt to taste.  Transfer to a large or two mason jars. Seal the jars and store them in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Makes 2 cups.
