Prep Time

10 mins

Cook Time

20 mins

Serves

4

Ingredients

2 large red peppers 
2 tbsp (30g) tomato paste
30g walnuts
1 tbsp Aleppo style pepper or milk chili flakes
50g breadcrumbs 
2 tbsp (30g) olive oil
2 tbsp pomegranate molasses, optional but recommended
1 lemon, juiced
1 tsp salt

Method

STEP 1

Preheat the oven to 200˚C fan/220˚C conventional. 

STEP 2

Add the peppers to a roasting dish. Roast the peppers for 35-40 minutes, rotating occasionally, until the peppers are charred throughout. 

STEP 3

Add the peppers to a bowl and cover with a plate or foil, which will help loosen the skins. Let the peppers sit for 20 minutes.

STEP 4

In the meantime, lower the heat of the oven to 160˚C fan/180˚C conventional. Toast the walnuts in the oven for 10-12 minutes, until fragrant. 

STEP 5

Use your hands to remove the skin and seeds from the peppers. Add the peppers to the food processor, along with the ⅓ of the walnuts, tomato paste, pepper flakes, breadcrumbs, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pomegranate molasses. 

STEP 6

Blend the dip until it’s smooth and creamy. Taste for seasoning and adjust to taste.

STEP 7

Chop the reserved walnuts. Serve the dipped topped with olive oil and the chopped walnuts, with toasted pita bread and sliced veg.
