This easy vegan red pepper dip recipe is perfect for all the family whether they are vegan or not and goes well with my other dip recipes and crudites or crisps if you prefer!

Red Peppers

Being UK-based, when I talk about peppers, it is more often than not bell peppers or capsicums that I mean rather than chilli pepper.

People often wonder why we tend to use red peppers in recipes more than the other varieties… truth be told, red peppers and green peppers are the same, but the red ones have just been left to mature. I have also used red peppers in my roasted red pepper and butternut squash soup which is one of my favourites.

Green peppers have a strong, fairly bitter taste, whereas red peppers are milder and their flavour much more well-suited to my taste buds. Do you prefer red peppers too?

Red peppers (actually a fruit!) are packed with vitamin A and C – so, as well as getting something tasty, it’s also great for your body.

Vitamin A works to help your body with vision, the immune system, and it also supports your organs to function well. Although Vitamin A deficiency is rare in the developed world, it is more common in those with cystic fibrosis.

Like its cousin Vitamin A, Vitamin C also helps your body’s immune system. Additionally, it can assist in protecting your body’s cells against free radicals, converting fat to energy, producing collagen and keeping the brain and nervous system functioning well.
