Notes about this recipe

  • TrishaCP on May 22, 2012

    For a "cheffy" cookbook this was a fairly straightforward and absolutely delicious twist on muhammara- creamy (from beans and almond meal), smoky (smoked paprika and other peppers), barely sweet (molasses of all things), and savory. Great for pita chips but would also be delicious with eggs. I do confess to a few shortcuts though- I used canned beans and instead of sauteeing garlic in oil (per his "Garlic Puree" recipe)- I used a full head of roasted garlic instead. I did use piquillo peppers since I had them on hand, but you could definitely just use ordinary roasted red peppers instead. Will absolutely make this again- great dip.
