Roasted sweet pepper spread with walnuts + tahini (vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free)

Although great to enhance pizza/pasta sauce, to top bowls of soup, rice, and noodles, or on its own as a dip, this spread will likely find other ways to become part of your repertoire. Look for a brand of roasted peppers that are seasoned with salt, garlic, and olive oil, such as Trader Joe’s brand; otherwise, consider adding those seasonings to the ingredients below. Inspired by a post on the Green Kitchen Stories blog.

Ingredients
  • jarred roasted red and/or yellow peppers, preferably Trader Joe’s brand Fire-Roasted Yellow & Red Peppers (see note)
  • walnuts
  • almond meal or almond flour
  • tahini
  • ground cumin
  • jalapeño chile, chopped (optional)
  • tomato, chopped
  • nutritional yeast (optional)
Method
  1. In a blender, add the roasted red peppers, a handful of walnuts, some almond meal, a couple of tablespoons tahini, some ground cumin, jalapeño, tomato, and nutritional yeast. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
  2. Taste and adjust the seasonings to suit your palate.
