Roasted Red Pepper Dip/Dressing

I’m off to a party today and I wanted to bring something savory that would fit in with my nutritarian diet and would be tasty to anyone else who eats it. It can’t always be hummus and bean dip but I knew I was craving roasted red peppers.

Behold a tasty and quick bean-free dip that is tasty and luscious. Can’t wait to dig in with some whole wheat pita triangles. This is so tasty that you could water it down a little and use it as a salad dressing.

Roasted Red Pepper Dip/Dressing

4 roasted red peppers
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 cloves of garlic
1 pinch chipotle pepper flakes (or black pepper or your favourite hot sauce)
3/4 raw sunflower seeds (soak for half an hour if you have the time)

Puree it all in a blender and refrigerate 2 hours to let the flavours meld.

For a dressing thin it out with a little water or more lemon juice depending on your taste preference. Even a little balsamic would work well here too!
