2 pounds red bell peppers (about 4 medium)
Cooking spray
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon honey
9 (6-inch) pitas, each cut into 8 wedges

  • Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise, discarding seeds and membranes. Place pepper halves, skin sides up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; flatten with hand. Broil 3 inches from heat 12 minutes or until blackened. Place in a zip-top plastic bag, and seal. Let stand 15 minutes. Place bell peppers in a food processor; process until smooth.

Stir in bell pepper puree, salt, and honey; cook 5 minutes. Cool. Place onion mixture in a food processor, and process until smooth. Serve with pitas.
