- Heat the oven to 200C/390F/gas mark 6. Put the peppers on a tray and roast for 30 -35 minutes, turning occasionally until they are cooked and the skin is blackened. Put the peppers in a bowl and cover with cling-film and once cool enough to handle, peel and discard skin and seeds.

This recipe is adapted from an Ottolenghi recipe. It is a classic Levantine dip and works well in the Thermomix because the reverse function ensures the textures of walnut and peppers remain slightly chunky. If you do not want to roast your own peppers you can use ready roasted peppers in a jar. It should have punch so do add more molasses or chilli to taste.
