Muhammara is a roasted pepper appetizer with Turkish origins. If you ever visit Turkey you will quickly understand that all meals begin with appetizers or “meze” usually accompanied by raki, a drink distilled from grapes and flavored with anise. Meze, an appetizer or small plate, can become an entire meal and a great way to sample the unique, earthy flavors of Turkish cuisine. This sauce is very similar to a Romesco sauce. So get creative and use this red pepper paste as a pasta sauce, try it with eggs or with roasted vegetables like cauliflower. Sometimes I just eat it from the bowl with a spoon too!
