    Not a traditional Levantine recipe by any means, but a delicious take on traditional flavours from the Levant nonetheless. I whip this up in mere minutes and serve with toasted pitta triangles. Guests are always intrigued and ask for the recipe!

    This popular dip originated in Aleppo, Syria, and is now a Levantine staple. Loaded with flavour thanks to roasted red pepper, walnuts, Aleppo pepper, pomegranate molasses and sumac. Serve as part of a meze platter, with flatbread, or in wraps and sandwiches.
