  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Put hazelnuts on a rimmed baking sheet lined in parchment paper.
  2. Roast hazelnuts until slightly dark about 5 to 7 minutes. Keep a watchful eye so they don't burn.
  3. Heat ¼ vegetable broth in a small frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and shallot until softened; about 2-3 minutes.
  4. In a food processor, add hazelnuts, bell peppers, shallot/garlic mixture, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  5. Process until coarse, but smooth. Add the mint and pulse a couple of times. Taste and add more seasoning if necessary.
  6. Spoon into a serving bowl with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice on top.
