  • 3 large Red Capsicums cut into thick strips, discard the seeds and stem
  • 1 cup JC's Australian Natural Walnuts roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic sliced
  • 1 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp Chili Powder to taste

  • 2 tbsp Pomegranate Molasses or Syrup
  • Squeeze of Lemon Juice
  • 1/3 cup Fresh Breadcrumbs

To serve

  • 1 tbsp Chopped Parsley
  • Pita Crisps
  • Cucumber Strips


  • Place the capsicum slices skin side up on a tray. Place under a preheated grill and cook for 10-15 minutes or until black and blistered. Wrap the capsicum pieces in a sheet of foil and allow to cool.
  • Gently remove the blackened skins from the capsicums and place the flesh into a food processor with the walnuts, garlic, spices, pomegranate molasses and lemon juice. Process until the dip is well combined but still a little chunky.
