Walnut-Garlic Spread

Title: Walnut-Garlic Spread
Categories: Tamwt03
Yield: 4 servings

2 Red bell peppers
1/2 c Walnuts
4 Garlic cloves
3/4 c Dried bread crumbs
1/4 c Extra-virgin olive oil
1 tb Pomegranate syrup; plus
Extra syrup for garnish
2 tb Lemon juice
1/2 ts Crushed red pepper flakes
Salt; to taste

Place peppers over a gas flame or on a tray under the broiler. Keep turning
so the skin is evenly charred, without burning and drying out the flesh.
Transfer charred peppers to a plastic bag, tie the top closed and let steam
until cool to the touch, about 15 minutes. Peel off the charred skin by
hand. Cut away stems, seeds and veins, and roughly chop. Place chopped
peppers in a blender or food processor, add a few drops of water, and
process to a paste. Transfer to a bowl and reserve. In the same blender,
drop in the walnuts and garlic with the motor running and process for 30
seconds. Add the bread crumbs and process another 30 seconds. Return the
peppers to the blender, along with the olive oil, pomegranate syrup, lemon
juice, red pepper flakes, and salt, and process until smooth. Adjust
seasonings, and transfer to a bowl. To serve, drizzle a little pomegranate
syrup over the top. This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.
