Muhammara (Lebanese Spicy Red Pepper Paste)

3 medium red bell peppers, steams, and seeds removed
1 medium Vidalia onion, chopped
½ cup olive oil
½ cup whole-wheat breadcrumbs
¾ cup walnuts, crushed
1-1½ tbsp chili powder (add more for a Spicer paste)
¼ tsp cumin
2-3 tbsp water 

1. Preheat oven 350F

2. Preparing the peppers:

On a lightly greased baking sheet, place red peppers. Roast for
approximately 12 minutes turning occasionally.

Remove from the oven and peel the skin off.

3. In a small, lightly greased (use olive oil) saucepan, sauté the onion
until translucent (about 5 minutes). Set aside to cool.

4. In a food processor, puree the breadcrumbs and the water. Add just
enough water to create an even paste.

5. Finishing up:

Add the onions, the peppers, and the oil to the food processor and
bland until an even paste.
