Muhammara (Syrian Roasted Pepper & Walnut Dip) by Keli

Made 'Muhammara' the Syrian roasted pepper and walnut dip.. it has a Mediterranean feel so I baked Italian rosemary bread to go with it. For extra dipping and drizzling had (my favorite) Italian lemon olive oil which is unique because its not just infusion but fresh lemons and olives are crashed together in the process of making the oil :D

There are many ways to make muhammara, according to taste.. here is my version:

4-5 largish size red bell or sweet pepper
1/2 cup toasted walnut
1/2 cup toasted wheat germ (I used it instead of breadcrumb)
1/4 cup olive oil
juice of half lemon
a small fresh chili or chili powder
ground cumin

Roast pepper and peel off skin, mix everything together (spice according to taste) in food processor.
