  • 50ml olive oil
  • 2 tsp Meridian Peanut Butter & Baobab
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 African birds eye chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • Pinch of salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 240C/gas mark 9. Roughly cut the red peppers into large chunks. Coat with olive oil and place skin side up on a baking tray into the oven.
  2. After 7-10 minutes remove from the oven and add the garlic. Roast the peppers until they begin to turn a little black. When the peppers are cool, add all the other ingredients to the blender/food processor and whizz until smooth. Season to taste and add more lemon if needed.
