This Thermomix Roasted Capsicum & Sun-Dried Tomato Dip is always a hit! It really is the perfect addition to any cheese platter - simply serve with crackers and vegetable sticks. Mmmm... yum!
The other day I was in the supermarket and couldn't get over the cost of the 'gourmet-style' dips... and for such a teeny-tiny amount. And so I grabbed a few basic ingredients, headed home and made my own version. Not only was it cheaper than buying the dip, it also made about 5 times the amount. Gotta love that!
This Thermomix Roasted Capsicum & Sun-Dried Tomato Dip is super easy to make. The only time consuming bit is roasting the capsicum in the oven (but I usually try and do this while I've got the oven on cooking dinner anyway). If you're pressed for time, you can of course use store-bought roasted capsicums.
Then it's simply a matter of popping all of the ingredients into the Thermomix, mixing them altogether, and then sitting down with a nice glass of wine, some crackers and cheese. Bliss!!
