1 cup walnuts
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
salt to taste
ground pepper to taste
- 2 fresh red peppers.
- 1 onion.
- 3 garlic cloves.
- 1 tsp lemon juice.
- Preheat the oven to 200°C, line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Cut peppers into halves. Using your hands, gently cover them in olive oil (about 1tsp), place the halves, facing down on the baking tray, add garlic and roast for about 40 minutes.
- Chop the walnuts and toast them on a dry pan.
- Chop the onion and fry on a medium heat until soft.
- Once the skin on the peppers is wrinkled and the peppers are charred, place them in an airtight container (a lunchbox will be perfect) and leave for about 30 minutes.
- Peel off the skins and place peppers in a blender. Add in the onions, garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and walnuts. Blend until smooth, or until you’ve reached your desired consistency.
- Season to taste, sprinkle with some crushed walnuts and enjoy!
