MOVE OVER HUMMUS, HELLO MUHAMMARA!

Have you ever tried Muhammara?  Its a slightly spicy, smokey, savory and mildly sweet dip that will have you asking for more.

I’m a big fan of grazing platters when having a few friends over and my hummus has either been accompanied by or replaced with this delicious dip.

The traditional recipe uses breadcrumbs and pomegranate molasses but my version is Whole30 compliant, and to be honest, I like it better.  I think the red peppers provide just the right about of smokey sweetness!

whether you are pairing this with pita bread, my low-carb grain-free seed crackers or some simple crudites, this creamy dip is a star!

I’ve made this a few times and always enjoyed it.

Today I ran out of walnuts so used roasted macadamia nuts instead. It made my dip much creamier and I think I even enjoyed it more than the walnuts 🙂
