A delicious, quick dinner: muhammara (a Syrian or Turkish pepper and walnut dip), Persian cukes, red pepper, roasted cauliflower, and a little beef cigars seasoned with ras el hanout. Add a little warm pita bread, if you like.

1/2 cup toasted walnuts
1 large clove garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
2 teaspoon pomegranate molasses
1/2 teaspoon Kitchen Imp harissa
1 roasted bell pepper (red is traditional, but I used yellow)
1 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice (we had no lemons, so I used sherry vinegar)
3 tablespoons hard grating cheese or feta (this ingredient isn't traditional, but I like the salty tang it adds to the dip)

Put 'em all in a food processor or blender and blend til just this side of smooth. Serve with sliced cucumbers and pepper.
