Amazing, delicious and healthy dip recipe that you can use in your dinner parties. Naturally vegan and gluten free. This is a popular recipe all over Middle East and especially good companion in the Raki dinners as meze. We combine roasted red pepper with roasted walnuts. Then we add pomegranate molasses which can be found in Middle Eastern grocery stores. If you can find please also add pepper paste which is also popular product in Middle Eastern grocery stores. All you need to do is some grilling and mixing ingredients in the food processor. Some ingredients like cumin and tahini is optional, so add these ingredients if you really like them:) If you have grill roast red peppers there or bake them in the oven. You can also buy roasted peppers from the store. If you do not have time to roast walnuts, you can add them raw. It will still be delicious
