    Red Pepper Walnut Spread

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 pounds roasted peppers
    • 1/2 cup ground walnuts
    • 3 tablespoons bread crumbs
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 4 teaspoons pomegranate molasses
    • 1/4 teaspoon red chili paste
    • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    Directions:
    • Place all ingredients in bowl of food processor and puree into paste
    • Serve with toasted pita 
    Pita Triangles:
    • Split pita bread in half.
    • Cut each half into triangles and arrange on a baking sheet.
    • Drizzle or spray a little oil on the triangles and bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for about 15 minutes, or until the pita sections begin to crisp and turn golden brown.

    You can, of course, gussy up these triangles in different ways while they bake.

    Sprinkle on some toasted cumin or curry powder, use a flavored oil or spoon on some minced roasted garlic, top with a pinch of fresh herbs.
