DIRECTIONS

  1. Begin by roasting the red bell peppers. You can do this over an open flame, on a grill, or in the oven. Once the skin is charred and blistered, place the peppers in a sealed plastic bag for about 10 minutes. This will make it easier to peel off the skin. Once peeled, remove the seeds and chop the peppers.

 

  1. Toast the walnuts in a dry skillet over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes, or until fragrant. Be careful not to burn them.

 

  1. In a food processor, combine the roasted red bell peppers, toasted walnuts, garlic cloves, olive oil, paprika, salt, and pepper.

 

  1. Blend until the mixture reaches a smooth and creamy consistency. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed.

 

  1. Transfer the dip to a serving bowl.

 

  1. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.

 

  1. Serve the Roasted Red Pepper and Walnut Dip with pita bread or crisp cucumber slices.
