3 roasted red pepper (or jarred)
2 garlic cloves
2 dl walnuts
2 ts hot red pepper paste or chili flakes
2 tbsp pomegranate sirup
2 dl breadcrumbs
½ dl olive oil
1 ts Himalayasalt
1 ts cumin
¼ ts clove
If you do not find pomegranate sirup you can make your own by boiling 4 dl of pomegranate juice and 3 dl of brown sugar until it becomes a sirup.
(You can also replace the sirup with a mix of lemon juice and maple sirup)
Turn on the oven 250 C and roast the red peppers on a baking tray for 20 min.
Once completely cool down, remove the skin and place in a food processor with all other ingredients and mix until a smooth dip.
Depending on how much liquid was in the roasted peppers, if the dip is still very thick, add a more olive oil. If mixture is too runny, add more breadcrumbs until it becomes a nice texture.
Taste for seasoning.
Transferee to a serving dish and drizzle some olive oil or pomegranate sirup and walnuts.
