Easy Red-Pepper Dip

Source: Everyday Food, May 2010


  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1 package whole-wheat pitas, 1 pita torn into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) roasted red peppers, drained, rinsed, and roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt


  1. In a medium skillet, simmer pomegranate juice over medium-high until thick, syrupy, and beginning to brown slightly around edges, 13 minutes (you should have about 2 tablespoons syrup).

  2. Meanwhile, in a food processor, process torn pita until coarse crumbs form. Add walnuts, paprika, cumin, and cayenne and process until finely chopped. Add peppers, lemon juice, and syrup and process until mixture is a smooth paste. With machine running, slowly pour oil through feed tube and process until combined. Season with salt and serve with remaining pitas, toasted and cut into wedges.

    I love this dip! Highly recommend it. It's beautiful and delicious. I used whatever nuts I had, which I've learned with pesto works well. Great to make a day ahead or morning of so the flavors mingle.

    This recipe is simply wonderful and easy to make. Also, I have tried it on sandwiches for a little kick.
