Romesco Sauce

Romesco sauce is an oil-free version of Spanish-style sauce made with simple ingredients in under 10 minutes. Dip raw or roasted vegetables, use it as a pasta or pizza sauce, or smother your potatoes. Your taste buds will love you! This is my new favorite sauce.

  • 2 Roasted Red Pepper I used 2 full pieces from the jarred red peppers in water or two fresh roasted red peppers.
  • 2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
  • 2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
  • ¼ cup blanched Almonds
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • ½ teaspoon Salt


  • Combine all the ingredients in a small food processor, small blender cup, or use an immersion blender.
  • Pulse or blend until the ingredients are combined but slightly textured.
  • The sauce can be blended into a smooth sauce as well, so choose your texture. I prefer the thicker version.


Another helpful hint is to use a small food processor, small blender cup, or an immersion blender to get the best results. I love my mini Cuisinart food processor for sauces and doing smaller jobs like my Vegan Parmesan Cheese.
