the best dip/sauce EVER

img_2377

I’m barely being dramatic when I say that this Romesco inspired sauce is the best thing ever. There used to be a little company at our local farmers’ market that sold this kind of sauce, but they seem to have disappeared so I decided that I needed to take things into my own hands. This sauce (or dip) is creamy and fresh tasting, and works on/with anything from simple veggies and dip, to pasta, to salad dressing. I love to put a big dollop on a quinoa or farro bowl to instantly make it a bit more exciting. The best part is that it’s easy to make and super healthy…

Combine two roasted red peppers (you can also do them on the stove in a super hot cast iron skillet until they’re nice and charred) 1/2 cup of almonds, 1/2 cup of olive oil, 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar, a clove of garlic, and salt to taste in a a blender, and pulse until smooth. I’ve also played around with adding a very small amount of sun dried tomatoes, which is also delicious and adds depth to the flavour. Let the mixture cool in the fridge and them serve with whatever you want.
