This Red Capsicum and Cashew Dip is a favourite in our household. It is ‘Friday night party fare’, ‘laid back Sunday afternoon chilling food’, or ‘take to work for snack goodness’ that your work mates will want to be a part of. My husband particularly loves this dip and, lucky for me, it’s one of the recipes that he likes to make for us in our Thermomix. Well, more accurately, that he likes to make for himself and I pinch as much of it as I can! The great thing about this dip is that I always have the bulk of these ingredients in my fridge and cupboard. All I have to go out of my way to buy is a red capsicum. This means that I can whip up this dip really fast, making it a ‘go to’ dip of mine whenever we have people over or we want a delicious snack for our weekend movie viewing.
This recipe is an adaptation of the Capsicum and Cashew Dip in the Thermomix Everyday Cookbook. I have tweaked it and used only ingredients that I love to ensure it is what I call ‘Hayley friendly’. This is a raw dip that is free from gluten, dairy, sugar, grains and preservatives. Plus, if you follow a paleo lifestyle and are happy to eat apple cider vinegar (which is considered beneficial by the paleo webpages I have had a look at), then this dip is for you too.
For me, making this dip in a few minutes is SO much better than buying any pre-made dip from the shops. I know exactly what’s in it – certainly no preservatives, additives, sulphites or food colours. I guarantee your friends and family will think you’re so clever when you produce this for them to enjoy. It’s always a hit!

I’m a massive fan of home made almond milk. It tastes great and it’s so simple to make with just two ingredients! It wins hands down in any competition against the store bought varieties of almond milk. It contains a greater proportion of almonds to water, it has no nasty additives, preservatives or thickeners, and …
