Method:

Preheat the oven to 200 degree C

Wash capsicums, cut in half, deseed them and place them on the roasting tray along with garlic cloves

Drizzle olive oil all over capsicums, sprinkle dish delicious blend, freedom spice blend, some salt, rub spices all over capsicums in and out with hands

Roast for minimum 20- 25 minutes until capsicums are blackened and soft , mean while capsicums are roasting in a pan roast walnuts, you can add walnuts with capsicums but you may have a chance of burning walnuts because of the timing , so roasting in a pan separately  is a great idea

Once done transfer it into a high speed blender, add walnuts, lemon juice, salt and pepper according to your taste, blend it until it reaches your desired consistency.

Adjust sweet and salt according to your taste

I love to make it bit thick and crunchy if I am using as a dip but if I am using as a base to lay on any roasted vegetable then I make it bit runny. In that case I just add cold water with 2 cube of ice. Ice cold water helps the texture to become more creamy and smooth.

Add water depending upon how runny you want for the recipe you are going to use for. Tip is don’t add all at once .

Once the dip is done, transfer it into your favorite bowl, drizzle infused oil you collected from roasting tray, sprinkle some microgreens and enjoy with any bread.

 

 

Notes:

You can either use 4 red ones or choose 2 red and 2 orange if you use green then you might not reach the same color

I love to add more olive oil and then collect some in glass jar to use as infused olive oil over my dips I make and sometimes I love to use them in my salad dressing

as well. You can keep this infused olive oil in pantry for weeks.

You can even roast these capsicums on open flame of your gas that gives this recipe an  absolute delicious touch too

If you want to swap walnuts with any other nuts then you can add cashew nuts, almonds, pine nuts as an option
