muhammara

Mmm is for muhammara! It may even be better than hummus. Traditionally, smoky roasted red peppers—the version from Aleppo uses the region’s distintive spicy peppers—are made into a spread and their flavor is mellowed using breadcrumbs, walnuts, and pomegrate molasses. Our twist on the classic muhammara omits the bread and substitutes Red Beet Crystals for pomegranate molasses to add a sweet and tangy flavor. Muhammara Red Pepper Dip Category Health Recipes Ingredients 1 cup walnuts 3 red bell peppers ¼…

While I love sweet potato in this recipe purely for its taste and texture, there are some benefits to consuming it with other fats such as walnuts and chocolate. The bright orange flesh of sweet potatoes tells us that it’s high in the vitamin A precursor beta-carotene. Because beta-carotene is a fat-soluble vitamin, it’s best to consume sweet potato…
