I had the red pepper dip with walnuts at a restaurant in San Francisco and it was so tasty. I was thinking how Keto and paleo friendly it could be if made with the right ingredients. I came home and made it with chia seed crackers that have so much fiber they basically have no net carbs. This a great dip and cracker combo to take to party where conventional eaters will go crazy for it.
I hope you and your family will enjoy this Keto Roasted Red Pepper Dip with Chia Seed Cracker Recipe. Thanks for visiting my blog!
Keto Red Pepper Dip (chia Seed Crackers below):
2 tablespoons olive oil (order here)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice the peppers in half and core out the seeds. Place them on the baking sheet with the garlic cloves and drizzle them with olive oil, a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Roast the peppers until soft about 20 -30 minutes. While you are roasting the peppers you can also toast the walnuts on a parchment covered cookie sheet at the same time on a different rack, for 10 to 15 minutes. When then walnuts are toasted set them aside to cool . Place the peppers and garlic in a covered dish and wait a few minutes. Remove the cover and peel the peppers. Place the peppers, garlic and the walnuts in a food processor. Add the paprika, cumin, lemon juice, stevia, if using, olive oil and salt and pepper and pulse until smooth. Taste with a spoon and add more salt if needed. Using a spatula transfer it to a bowl and top with sesame seeds and cilantro.
