Inspired by muhummara, a Turkish spread typically made from roasted red peppers and walnuts, this stunning and addicting spread is perfect for festive occasions or any regular day of the week. Serve with warmed pita triangles. Recipe and photo courtesy of Betsy DiJulio, from The Blooming Platter Cookbook: A Harvest of Seasonal Vegan Recipes  (© 2011, Vegan Heritage Press) .
Yield: 4 cups
In a food processor, combine the beets, walnuts, bread crumbs, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, molasses, and lemon juice and pulse to a textured paste.
With the motor running, drizzle in the olive oil and process until fairly smooth, but still textured. Scrape the mixture into a serving bowl, garnish with walnuts, if using, and serve.
