Civisli Biber (Red Pepper Spread)

This red pepper paste has a nice texture and flavor from the addition of walnuts. Serve it with pita chips, crackers, or as a spread on sandwiches.



2 cups


  • 4 red bell peppers
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • salt
  • Juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil


Heat broiler and roast peppers until charred on all sides. Place in paper bag until cool, then peel, seed and de-vein. Using the steel blade, blend to a paste in food processor, and then mix in remaining ingredients. Pulse in processor briefly, then adjust seasoning to taste.
