Nut-free Romesco Sauce

Nut-free Romesco Sauce

Creamy, rich Romesco tomato sauce without the additional calories of blanched almonds used in traditional recipes. This sauce can be gently warmed on the stove top before being added to a bed of raw zucchini noodles. Just make sure to monitor the heat by testing with your finger or using a thermometer. This recipe makes a great, spicy and flavorful alternative to traditional pasta marinara sauce!



2 cups sliced Baby Heirloom Tomatoes (see recipe notes for other options)

1/2 c sliced/chopped Red Bell Pepper

1/4 c chopped Scallion

1/4 c Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

1 Tbsp minced/pressed Garlic

1 Tbsp Paprika (Spanish Smoked Paprika is even better)

1 tsp Onion powder

1/2 tsp Ancho Chili powder //or// Cayenne powder

1/2 tsp Cracked Black Pepper

1/2 tsp Salt (or to taste)



1) Place all of the above ingredients into your food processor and puree for 1 minute
