I agree with some other people that it's too bland. I personally wonder if there is too much olive oil in the recipe. I added some chilli paste and a bit more lemon and that improved it. May add some ground cumin as suggested and see if that improves it further.

Made this recipe today and omg it's so good. I actually prefer it to hummus. I added 2 more peppers and would probably add another and a bit more coriander. Oh and I forgot to add lemon juice and I won't bother with it when I make it next. I'm going to take this to work with pitta and raw veggies, it's delicious!!

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!

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!!

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
