A unique spread made with red peppers, pomegranate, and walnuts.
The hardest thing to find is the pomegranate molasses. It’s available at specialty food stores (like Whole Foods) or Middle Eastern markets. I’ve had several people ask me where to find the the Middle Eastern spice, Za’atar, lately. If you’re on a mission to a market to pick it up, get yourself some pomegranate molasses too!
If you can’t find pomegranate molasses, make some (that’s what we did)! We boiled down 2 cups of Pom Juice, juice from 1/4 lemon, and 1/3 cup of sugar until it was just 1/2 cup of liquid.
You can make this spread as spicy as you’d like by adding more or less crushed red pepper. We added just a pinch and loved the slight kick. But if you love spicy, by all means, add lots of pinches!
This spread can be served on bread or crackers or used as a dip for chips or veggies. We served it on the side of our falafel dinner the other night!
