Recipe: Roasted Beet & Walnut Dip For Your Harlem Home Or Off To School

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.

Pack this up in a small Tupperware for the little ones and send it off to school or work with a bunch of pita slices and or vegetable sticks.
