A salad lunch is scrumptious, but if you don’t have much time, a tasty sandwich with healthy toppings is an easy alternative. Muhammara is a delicious sandwich spread that you can make yourself. It’s packed with good fibre, healthy fats, and vegetables. You can make a batch on Sunday so that you have a delicious spread for work throughout the week or at home! It’s also delicious as a dip for vegetables or as a sandwich spread with a slice of chicken breast or cheese and cucumber. Save stale bread for the breadcrumbs in this recipe.

  • Use stale bread for the breadcrumbs. First remove the crusts, then run the slices in a food processor until you get crumbs. You can use either white or brown bread.
  • If you want to grill the peppers yourself, put 2 (sweet pointed) peppers in the oven (180 degrees) and bake them until the skins loosen. This should take about 15 minutes. Let cool for a while and then peel off the skins.
  • Place all the ingredients in the blender, blend into a nice smooth spread and your muhammara dip or sandwich spread is ready to be served.
