4

Line a baking tray and spoon the mixture into the tray pressing firmly down with the back of a spoon. Make sure it is a thin layer - you may need two trays.

Dip

Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.

8

Drizzle capsicum and carrot with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and bake for approximately 25 minutes.

9

Saute onion, garlic and chilli in a fry pan on a medium heat and then reduce the heat to a medium-low and cook for a further 15 minutes.

10

Once the capsicum has been removed from the oven and cooled slightly, peel the skin from each piece.

11

Once all ingredients have cooled, transfer into a food processor or Thermomix and blend. Either add the pine nuts before you process or, if you would prefer a crunchier texture, add them in at the end.
