Vegan Roasted Red Pepper Dip (Recipe)

Even the day after, I’m still enamored with this dipand can’t keep from smothering crispy flat breads with it.

I was at the library yesterday, around 4pm, trying to get some research done and couldn’t stop thinking about how hungry I was. It’s obvious, one shouldn’t go to the library hungry – especially when one is looking at books about food. By 5pm, I was out the library doors, heading to the nearest natural food store: for almond butter and hot sauce. I’d finally decided to try out this dip idea I’d had for way too long (a year’s long for one of those “I’ll-get-to-it-one-of-these-days” recipes, isn’t it?).

What I like about this dip/spread is that is tastes almost creamy, but has no dairy in it. Instead, it has protein and calcium from almonds. I feel like this makes the savory taste of the roasted red peppers stand out even more.

Shopping List

2 large red bell peppers

4 tablespoons almond butter (without sugar)

1 clove garlic (minced)

Several dashes of hot pepper sauce

Salt and pepper


1. Cut the red peppers into pieces and bake with a bit of olive oil at 210C/410F. Cook until completely soft and blackening at the edges.

2. In a blender, mix the roasted peppers with the other ingredients. Add hot sauce, salt and pepper to your taste.

3. Refrigerate for about half an hour.

That’s all, really.

  1. – This is so exciting! Thank you Bea, Dre9, Haalo, Jen, Lara, Lynne and Patricia. I feel hoorend. By the way, some of the photos aren’t showing up on the page, and a few of the links are broken, or don’t go where they are intended. Just to let you know. Also, is there html for a fabulous DMBLGIT button to go on our site? From the pictures I can see, there was quite a bit of stiff competition. Thanks again!

  2. Yes! I agree about VK — was going to mention that too. I don’t automatically buy it (unlike IK), but this issue looks good. I also agree that there are some duds of amazing proportions — does anyone want to wear a sweater that is four feet wide?

  3. We don’t know that it’s the same scene. They cut and splice things in order to make them misleading. They do it every year… we won’t know for sure until we see the show in full.   0 likes

  4. Obviously I’m on here because I’m posting this comment but I have to agree. We should all take a day off and just relax and enjoy! I plan on watching movies today! I love movies.I’m talking about something similar to this in my next blog post on… Not up yet but will be in a few days. Obviously not the weekend of course! lolHave a great day Eleanor. .-= Eric´s last blog .. =-.

  5. and how he characterized these particular failures. WRT him personally, I wouldn’t call him dumb or incompetent. On the contrary, I think he’s a smart, capable guy. But that doesn’t ensure your success as CEO, and the track record of MSFT under his leadership isn’t pretty on numerous critical dimensions – the ones he noted being but a fraction.

  6. The suggestions you discussed here are rather valuable. It was such a fun surprise to see that waiting for me after i woke up today. They are often to the point and easy to grasp. Warm regards for the innovative ideas you have shared above.
