This delicious low fat roasted red pepper dip is made from a unique combination of healthy veggies which combine and marinate together to produce a rich and hearty taste. Your dinner party friends will be in awe at this flavoursome dip!
So folks, welcome to the last in my series of four favourite dips, with this my low fat roasted red pepper dip.
Like my previous 3 dips, this low fat roasted red pepper dip is perfect for sharing and perfect served with a selection of crudites such as carrots, celery or cucumber.
This, low fat roasted red pepper dip goes perfectly with all the other dips in the photograph, tzatziki, hummus dip and red pesto dip. They compliment each other perfectly and are ideal for your pre-dinner appetisers!
Plus, all of these 4 dips are perfectly freezable. That is of course, if there’s any left! 😉
- 2 large red bell peppers
- Low fat cooking spray
- ½ small onion , finely chopped
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 400 g can chickpeas , rinsed and drained
- 2 garlic cloves , peeled and crushed
- 1 red chilli , deseeded and roughly chopped
- 1 – 2 tbsp. sweet chilli sauce
- ½ lemon , finely grated zest
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Turn on grill to a high heat and cover an oven tray with aluminium foil
- Place the bell peppers, whole, on the tray. Then place the tray in the upper third of your oven.
- Let the peppers roast for approximately 20 – 25 minutes, turning them every 5 minutes, until they are charred black and crispy. Remove from the oven to cool.
- Whilst the peppers are roasting, you can prepare the other ingredients, whilst still keeping a close eye on the peppers! Spray a small frying pan 5 times with the low fat cooking spray and adding the onion, coriander and cumin, stirring all together and adding small drops of water if the ingredients should stick.
- Once the onion mixture has cooked place it in a food processor bowl to cool.
- Once the peppers have cooled enough to handle you will need to de-seed and peel them, then cut them up into smaller pieces.
- Add the pepper pieces, chickpeas, garlic, red chill, and 1 tbsp. sweet chilli sauce and lemon zest to the onion mixture in the food processor bowl and blitz the mixture until as smooth as possible. Check and season with salt and pepper and add more sweet chilli sauce if required.

All of these 4 favourite dip recipes were ones I altered and put together based on the previous full fat dip recipes I used to make.
I had to stop eating those full fat dips when I was looking to loose weight and get into shape at the beginning of my journey into the 80/20 lifestyle Lady Lynne and I lead now.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these dips and if you get a chance to make some, or even one of them, I’d love to hear what you think by commenting below!
