Red Pepper Party Spread

This deliciously rich spread is a Middle Eastern dish called Muhammara. It’s easy to make and it’s a hit at parties, so if you’ve got Super Bowl plans, make this to share with friends. For a bolder taste, prepare it the day before to allow the flavors to fully blend. Stir well and serve it up with pita triangles or fresh veggies.


Ingredients:

2-3 roasted red peppers (from jar or roasted yourself)
2/3 cup bread crumbs
1 cup walnuts, toasted
4 large garlic cloves
½ tsp. salt
1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. clover agave nectar or maple syrup
1 tsp. ground cumin
½ tsp. red pepper flakes (or more for added spice)
toasted pine nuts (for garnish)

Directions:

  1. If roasting your own peppers, heat the oven to 525 degrees (or use your broiler if you have one); place peppers on an oiled cookie sheet; roast on the highest rack for about 30 minutes or until they turn completely black; remove from oven, and put them in a paper bag right away; let them cool before handling them; the blackened skin will then just peel off after only about 10 minutes in the bag.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine the roasted peppers and all remaining ingredients, except pine nuts.
  3. Taste, and add more spice or salt as necessary; garnish with toasted pine nuts. Makes 1 cup or more.

This recipe came from Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's fabulous book, The Vegan Table!

Veggies for Heart Health

New research adds to the growing body of evidence that eating more fruits and veggies can reduce your risk of dying from heart disease. A recent study from the University of Oxford and published in the European Heart Journal, compiled information on 300,000 people in eight different countries. People who consumed eight or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day were 22 percent less likely to die from ischemic heart disease (reduced blood supply to the heart) than those who consumed three or fewer servings a day. The more fruits and vegetables consumed consistently indicated a lower heart disease risk. For every additional serving above two per day, researchers found a four percent decrease in the rate of heart disease deaths.
