Fresh and tasty, this Thermomix Roasted Capsicum and Macadamia Dip is so moreish! With less than five minutes active time, it’s very simple to make and very easy to eat.

I always used to LOVE those nutty dips you can buy. You know the ones… capsicum and cashew… sweet potato and cashew… basil pesto…

Back when I got my first Thermomix, I decided pretty quickly that dips would be a simple thing to make in it and I knew I wanted to play around with these veggie/nut type combos!

Roasted capsicum is so easy to make at home! Roasting it adds so much richness and depth of flavour. Aaaand it lends itself to cheese, so fetta was an essential ingredient when coming up with this. Add a few other bits and pieces, simple really. And we end up with this:

How to make this Divine Thermomix Capsicum Dip

Dips in general are pretty easy to make, especially when you have a thermie at your fingertips! Just two steps to this one, well, three if you count pre-heating the oven.

1. Roast a red capsicum in the oven. Once it’s roasted, peel it.

Three images showing three different stages of roasting capsicum. Each is on a black round tray with two red capsicums on. Text on the right: 'brush with oil'; 'bake 20 minutes'; and 'remove skin'

2. Add capsicum to the thermie, along with all other ingredients. Turbo-blend a few times. Done.

This was YUM!! I used cashews instead of macadamias as that’s all I had, and chives and parsley as no basil. So fresh and tasty!

Did you use the same measurements for your pumpkin ie 75g?

I’d be tempted to go a little more, Rachael! But maybe add and see what tastes ‘right’?

Fantastic, thanks Bec! I subbed roasted pumpkin instead of the feta and it was beautiful x
