This is a really quick recipe, my friends. Quick, but very satisfying. Sweet pepper dip is my absolute favourite and the other day it just occurred to me it would be fun to re-create it. There is something about the combination of sweet roasted capsicum and the smoothness of feta cheese that just appeals to me.
Sweet pepper dip is super easy to make
Of course you can buy this dip, if you’re short on time, but really, it isn’t that much harder to make it at home.
You need three ingredients and that’s it. Three. And I bet you might even have a couple of those already in your fridge – sweet peppers in a jar, feta cheese and cream cheese. Let’s add a food processor to the mix and voila! Your sweet pepper dip is done.
So easy that kids can do it
You’ll need a food processor to blitz all the ingredients together nicely and create a smooth dip. I am loving my KitchenAid mini chopper at the moment and my five year olds do too. You can’t blitz anything without having the lid on (you hold the edge of the lid down in order to start the processor) and I feel it’s super safe and easy for them to use (under my careful supervision, of course). I am glad they are learning about homecooking and what’s healthy and what’s not, and they are keen to help out in the kitchen. I hope that it’s teaching them good habits for life.

Check your spiciness levels
Although, while your kids might be able to make this, whether they can eat it will depend on how spicy your peppers are and, if they are a bit spicy, whether your kids enjoy spicy food. I used sweet peppers which were only a little spicy but our twins are only five years old and so anything which is even a little spicy is to be definitely avoided. That said, if you have older kids or kids who are used to a little spice (it is not very spicy at all), this little dip would be absolutely lunch box friendly.
Alternatively, you could try making it the day before and tasting it again the next day – it seemed to me that the spiciness dissipated a little the following day.
At the other extreme, if you would like a little extra spice, feel free to add some chilli powder to the mix. Enjoy!
