  • Brief Description

    We love nutty, sweet-n-spicy deliciousness; and with Ziba’s smooth walnuts – this show-stopper of a dish hailing from the middle-east ranks high on our favorites. Mama Herminie shares the recipe her Armenian family made back in Lebanon. It takes 2 cups of walnuts – but that’s a great thing as walnuts are rich in anti-oxidents and omega-3’. It’s super quick and easy to prep the night before any event. This recipe serves 6, but can be easily adjusted to serve any number of people. Serve with carrots or cucumbers sticks, pita or crackers. You can also add it to melting cheese on bread or into a sandwich for a delicious twist.

Number of Servings:


  1. 4 tablespoons - Red paper paste 4-6 tablespoons (less if using store bought)
  2. 2 cups - Toasted walnuts 10 minutes in oven
  3. 1/3 cups - Bread crumbs
  4. 1 tablespoons - Pomegranate syrup
  5. 1/2 teaspoons - Cumin 1 – 1/2 tsp cumin (depending upon how much you prefer)
  6. 1/4 teaspoons - Sugar
  7. 1 tablespoons - Lemon juice
  8. 1 teaspoons - Cayenne powder
  9. 1 teaspoons - Salt (or to taste)
  10. 1/2 cups - Olive oil


1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor. Pulse a few times, then run for 10
seconds. Scrape down sides and run again for 10 seconds. You do not want to
puree the dip into mush but rather leave some walnut pieces to keep the dip
chunky and textured.
2. Put in serving plate, garnish with some slivers of walnuts and pepper and
refrigerate a couple of hours.
