I added a couple of sun-dried tomatoes in oil, as well as the cumin as suggested below.
Also substituted flat-leaf parsley for the coriander.

I love garlic, but I think 1 whole clove of raw garlic was a bit too potent, even for me!

Wasn't very impressed. Bit bland.

I made this with just one red pepper and added cumin as suggested by Donna D (thanks for the tip!).

I found it really tasty and I'm going to have mine on my home made bread made with half spelt flour/half white. Yum!

Really tasty - I added a teaspoon of lazy chilli & half of ground cumin.
Will be also adding half a block of feta next time - very soon!!

Great dip. Roasted red peppers and added some chilli.

Something was missing and I'm not sure what it was. I agree it was a rather bland dip so i added some fresh chilli which definitely perked it up and then tried adding the feta as suggested in the recipe. Even threw in a couple of walnuts in the end. It was okay but not great.

Was really disappointed by this recipe. Found it incredibly bland, even when I added extra roasted pepper. Maybe some chilli would have perked it up??

I used raw red pepper and added some crushed chillies - went down a treat

I remember knocking up this dish a while back.
Very easy and delicious! An absolute no-brainer dip - ideal with toasted pittas or breadsticks alike

I made this just to try it out and everyone loved it, now I can't remember how many times I have made it!
