Red Pepper Dip

This is sweet and smoky and perfect as a dip, or served on the side with just about anything.

Serves 2-4


  • 1 red pepper cut into strips
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • 1 large whole clove garlic
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika (optional)
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt & pepper


  • Mix all the ingredients together so everything is lightly coated with olive oil. Add more oil if needed.
  • Place into a shallow baking tin and roast at 180C for 25 mins.
  • Allow to cool slightly, then blend until smooth.
  • Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper to your taste. The dip should be sweet, smoky and very tasty!

  • Crumble the tofu with your hands into small pieces. Doesn’t matter if some pieces are larger than others.
  • Mix all the other ingredients in a large bowl. Add approximately 2 tbsp vegan salad cream.
  • Add the crumbled tofu and mix well with a wooden spoon. Add more salad cream until you get the right consistency (tofu should be well coated but not too runny).
  • If you don’t have vegan salad cream just use more mayo and add a dash of agave syrup and a dash of lemon juice.
  • Serve a generous layer into a sandwich made from bread of your choice. As the filling is slightly soft, a softer bread works well with this one.
