Muhammara is a Middle Eastern dip made of roasted red peppers and walnuts. It’s the perfect addition to a mezze platter or as a party snack. It’s full of flavor and is always a winner with guests. I recommend serving your Muhammara Dip with FODMAP-free crudités such as carrot and cucumber sticks but it also pairs perfectly with crackers or warm pita bread.

Did you know? Red bell peppers are really nutritious and are brimming with vitamin C – just 1 cup of red peppers will provide you with over 150% of your daily vitamin C needs! But most importantly they are FODMAP-free. Bell peppers are the only member of the capsicum family that don’t have capsaicin in them (the thing that gives peppers their spicy kick) so they are easier on the digestive system too. If you’re not a fan of spice, or your digestive system doesn’t like it, then you can remove the chili flakes from this recipe.

Method
1

Preheat the oven to 200°C.

2

Place the red peppers on a baking tray. Roast them until they’re black and blistered – roughly 35 minutes.

3

Place the blackened peppers in a bowl and cover the bowl with cling film for a couple of minutes. The steam makes it much easier to peel the skin off the peppers.

4

Peel the skin off the red peppers and roughly chop them.

5

Add everything but the walnuts and olive oil to a food processor and blend until smooth.

6

Then add the walnuts and with the motor running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil. Blend until almost smooth – I like to keep a little bit of texture.

7

To serve, drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil and crushed walnuts.
