Servings: Makes about 1-1/2 cups
The traditional way to make muhammara, a classic Syrian spread, is with roasted peppers, but this delicious version swaps in earthy beets. Its vibrant color, matched by its deep flavor, will get everyone at your next party talking. Serve with pitas or crackers as an exciting alternative to hummus.

This spread is fantastic. I have found myself making this time and again.
Excellent - a wonderful taste combination of sweet then spice
Delicious. Years ago in Boston I used to buy Mouhammara but I have not found it since; this dish brought me right back! I found the pomegranate molasses at a high end healthy market; I would not recommend substituting regular molasses. I used Aleppo peppers and next time would add some dried red pepper too, for a bit of heat. I added extra lemon before serving. It's so vibrant visually; make sure you consider on which dish you will plate it!
This is a truly refreshing and tasty spread. Took it to a party last night and got many request for the recipe. I did add additional salt and lemon juice. This is definitely a keeper.
