Beet & Walnut Dip

15 minutes prep
15 minutes total

Makes 6 - 8 servings

Inspired by the Syrian red pepper and walnut dip called muhammara, this version uses another popular Middle Eastern ingredient, beets.

While most dips like this use roasted beets, this one leaves them raw. After a few minutes of chopping, all the ingredients go into the food processor, so you can have this appetizer on the table quickly.

What you'll have to do

Step 1

Toast the walnuts in a 350F oven for about 10 minutes. Let cool a few minutes, then process with the garlic until the mix looks like breadcrumbs.

Step 2

Scrub the beets, trim off the root and stem ends, and cut into small pieces roughly 1/2" thick.

Step 3

Combine with the other ingredients in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped to a uniform texture. Taste and add salt if needed.

Step 4

Serve with vegetables (cucumbers, carrots, red peppers), tortilla, chips, or pita bread for dipping.
