Romesco Sauce

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Aunt Cookie

This is good on fish, vegetables...I'm sure that whatever you dream up would be good. I listed this as a low carb recipe, so I probably shouldn't say this, but this tastes really good with bread. From the Low Carb Cookbook by Fran McCullough.

Awesome. I grilled some green onions (see No Reservations, Spain) and dipped in this sauce. Fabulous.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Put the garlic, almonds, tomatoes, and pepper on a baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. The veggies should be soft.
  3. Peel and seed the tomatoes (honestly, I don't bother to peel them -- I'm a little lazy that way).
  4. Peel the garlic.
  5. Put the roasted ingredients in a blender or food processor and grind thoroughly.
  6. Add the vinegar and salt.
  7. While the food processor is still running, gradually trickle in the oil until the sauce thickens.
