How to make Romesco Sauce?

Blend it!

In a food processor add all the ingredients and blend until you get creamy and smooth consistency! If you like you can also leave it a bit thicker or blend it extra smooth if you prefer this consistency. For the best results you have to taste it before serving! Adjust spices and salt!

Tips for the Best Romesco sauce

  • I recommend to use high quality ingretients.
  • Start with less seasonings and adjust in the making.
  • Roast your own red peppers. If you have the time, you can absolutely roast your own red peppers. You can roast them in the oven or cook on the stove gas until it’s brown and then peel the skin. Also for the best result I would recommend to grill them and peel the skin.

How long can you store Romesco sauce?

Store Romesco dipping sauce in the frindge for up to 5-6 days in the airtight container.

This recipe makes enough that you’ll likely get several uses out of it, which is great. Leftover sauce is perfect for a healthy snack the next day or you can even add it to your breakfast or a sandwich for lunch.
