Muhammara (Roasted Red Pepper and Walnut Spread)

Looking for a change from serving hummus as your appetizer? Muhammara is traditionally a hot pepper dip, orignating in Syria. This rich and delicious milder version uses roasted red peppers and goes wonderfully with pita bread, pita chips, raw veggies or spread on crusty toasted bread. It's nice to make this a day ahead to let the flavors blend and intensify overnight. Feel free to increase the amount of crushed red pepper to kick up the heat a bit!
