Sprinkle over the Paprika and cook in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes, shaking the tray occasionally until well browned.
  2. Meanwhile make the pesto style dip by placing all the ingredients in a food processor. Blend until fairly smooth then season to taste. Transfer to a bowl and chill until ready to serve.
  3. To make the other dips, blend the ingredients and season as in step 2, then place in separate bowls and chill until needed.
