  • 1 butternut squash
  • 2 large red peppers
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil to serve


  • Pre-heat your oven to 180°C.
  • Prepare your vegetables by peeling, de-seeding and cutting the butternut squash into half inch cubes. De-seed and stalk the red peppers and cut into one inch pieces.
  • Pour the olive oil in a large roasting tray and toss in the butternut squash and red pepper with the salt.
  • Roast the vegetables for about 1 hour 15 minutes. Checking every so often to give a stir.
  • Remove the vegetables from the oven and leave to cool.
  • Pour the butternut squash and the red pepper into a food processor, along with the excess olive oil and whip up with the almond milk until smooth.
  • Toast the cumin seeds in a dry saucepan for thirty seconds then crush lightly in a pestle and mortar and add to the food processor. Pulse into the rest of the dip slightly just to disperse the spice.
  • Transfer the dip to a serving bowl and chill until needed.
  • Serve with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a few extra cumin seeds if you like.
