MUHAMMARA

MUHAMMARA

When I was visiting turkey this spread was always offered as an appetizer with bread. It was my favourite. I had no idea what it was or what was even it in. All I knew is that it tasted delicious. I’ve seen this made to a hummus consistency, but when I ate it in Turkey it was thicker – somewhere between a hummus and a paste. It was more of a thick spread and that’s how I make it, just like the ones I had in Turkey.
