How to Make It
In a small skillet, toast the cumin over moderately high heat until fragrant, 1 minute. Transfer to a food processor. Add the beet, 3/4 cup of walnuts, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, garlic and the 1 1/4 teaspoons of Urfa. Pulse to finely chop. With the machine on, drizzle in the olive oil until the dip is almost smooth. Season with salt. Transfer to a small bowl and garnish with more walnuts and Urfa.
Urfa biber, or Urfa pepper, is a smoky, sour Turkish chile. It’s available at laboiteny.com or amazon.com.
