Muhammara May I

Is it a dip? A spread? A sunscreen? Muhammara is a zesty, peppery Middle Eastern dish that makes hummus feel the way I feel when I go down the rabbit hole of Instagram influencers— less good about myself in comparison. Traditionally a combination of roast-ed red peppers and walnuts, my version adds white beans so that eating it really satisfies.

Muhammara May I

Is it a dip? A spread? A sunscreen?
