1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).


2. Cut the red bell pepper in half and remove the seeds and stem. Place the pepper halves on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

7. In a food processor, add the roasted peppers, toasted walnuts, and a drizzle of olive oil. Pulse until the mixture is smooth and creamy.


8. Add a pinch of dried oregano, thyme, and garlic powder to the dip and pulse again to combine.


9. Taste the dip and adjust the seasoning if needed.
