Last night I made these lamb meatballs using toasted pistachios in the mix but I think walnuts would have worked really well also. What are your favorite uses for nuts in Middle Eastern cooking?

My first attempt at Muhammara - the red pepper and walnut spread - used inspiration from Maureen Abood 's recipe and Ottolenghi 's. Who has made this and has recipe tips to share? My tasters last night thought it was authentic (they are from Israel). I loved the depth of flavor from the pom molasses and Aleppo pepper.

Walnuts - so ubiquitous in cooking - are our August featured ingredient! Did you know how central they are to Middle Eastern cuisine? It is the oldest fruit tree and in Syria, they are known as the "nuts of Aleppo" because of where they are grown in abundance (myhalalkitchen.com). What is your favorite way to use walnuts in Middle Eastern cooking?
