capsicum, cashew and sundried tomato dip

I know what you’re thinking. Enough already with the recipes and telling us how much you love your thermomix. We get it. Sorry, I do love it. But I just have to share this delicious chunky dip with you. It’s so delicious, fresh and tasty. I also love the recipe as it makes a huge amount which means I can take a big bowl of the stuff out with me and still leave enough for retro daddy. 
capsicum, cashew and sundried tomato dip
so here’s what you need:
1 clove garlic
2 Tbsp grated parmesan
1 red capsicum quartered
150g sundried tomatoes, drained
160g raw cashews
40g/mls olive oil
40g/mls white vinegar
Just blitz all the ingredients together in a food processor until you have a chunky style dip. If you have a thermomix this recipe is in your ‘everyday cooking’ book. You just do 4 presses of the Turbo button as you want it chunky. It’s nothing like the teeny tiny containers of dip at the supermarket and you will get at least 5 times the quantity.I ‘ve had it with plain rice crackers, wafer crackers and carrot sticks and they all taste delicious. So give it a go. I normally just make hummus so this is a little bit fancy but definitely worth making.

I’ve put oil and vinegar as grams as that is how they do the recipes for the thermomix as it measures our liquids that way.

  13. I’ve just made this in my food processor, and it’s just gorgeous. So nutty, and mellow and fresh. If there are leftovers after the party, I’m planning to have it mixed through spaghetti, as a sort of pesto-y sauce. Yum!
