Dish of the Week: Muhammara from Truva Turkish Kitchen

Truva’s muhammara is a traditional Mediterranean dip made from walnuts and red peppers. This version also features breadcrumbs, pomegranate molasses, pepper, tomato paste, lemon juice and olive oil.

The balanced flavors somehow conspire to make this dish incredibly addictive. The breadcrumbs are incorporated, soaking up the olive oil to enhance the richness of the walnuts. There’s a touch of sweetness from the pomegranate molasses, offset by the tart lemon juice. And, the muhammara soaks into the soft crumb of Truva’s expertly grilled flatbread.

If you visit Truva with more than one other person, do yourself a favor and get multiple muhammara orders for the table. Better yet, take an order home, and share it with no one. Just don’t expect any leftovers.

Truva Turkish Kitchen. 842 Highland Ave., Atlanta. 404-228-1007; 60 Andrew Young International Blvd. NE, Atlanta. 404-577-8788. truvahighland.com.
