Happy Meatless Monday! It’s been a while since I last posted a MM recipe so here it is – raw vegan Red Pepper Dip/Spread.
I’ve been trying lots of veggie recipes recently and I can really feel the difference.
I love all kinds of food but it seems I feel better when on a raw vegan diet. This is why I’ve been experimenting and this is how this spread/dip was invented. Plus, these recipes are so light and fresh, they’re perfect for the hot days at the moment.
As most of them, these recipes are more than simple and quick to make. The ingredients are red pepper, sunflower seeds, garlic, olive oil and seasoning. It is really tasty, kind of like hummus with red pepper flavour.You can either dip some veggie sticks in (like carrots, cucumbers, beetroot) or make small bites and top them up with the dip. Seriously, those veggie recipes are amazing. It would be very tasty on a bruschetta or in a pasta. May be add it to your pizza or sandwich? 🙂 It goes with almost everything, really. Well, that if you like red peppers. 🙂 I knoe some people really dislike them. I hope that’s not the case. 🙂
Here’s what you need for this delicious Red Pepper Dip.
- 1-2 red pepper, cut in pieces
- 100g/3.5oz sunflower seeds
- 1 garlic clove
- 2tbsp olive oil
- Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth consistency.
- If wished, add some water.
- Sprinkle some extra sunflower seeds and paprika when serving
Tip: Why not try adding some fresh parsley! Or simply any fresh herbs you fancy. 🙂 Oh, did you check my Raw Vegan Zucchini & Cashew Dip? If, not, you should! 🙂
