bell pepper & walnut dip
Updated: Oct 2, 2019
My neighbour left a basket of home-grown bell peppers on my doorstep today. Tiny little things, but oh my god are they flavourful. That's the beautify of island life, everyone is friendly, & everyone seems to have a little garden full of goodies.
Ingredients: – 1kg assorted bell peppers ( red/orange/yellow…more red=stronger more yellow=sweeter) avoid green – 1 onion – 1 garlic clove – 200gr feta cheese (fage) – 150gr ground walnuts – 4 tbs olive oil – 2 tbs balsamic vinegar – 1 tsp sugar – 1 tsp thyme – salt and pepper
Directions: 1. Chop the onion and peppers roughly and place in a mixing bowl. Add sugar, garlic, oil, balsamic and thyme and mix well. Let it marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes. 2. Place the pepper mix in a baking dish that can hold everything in one layer. (use two if needed) Roast at 220C for about 40-50 minutes. Once they look roasted and slightly charred at places, remove and allow to cool. 3. Crumble the feta cheese and mix it with the walnuts and the roasted vegetables in a food processor, pulsate till smooth & then transfer into your favorite serving bowl. Make sure to use the oil from the baking dish as it’s packed with peppery aroma. 4. Serve at room temperature with chips, pita bread or even chicken nuggets.
