RECIPE: ROMESCO

Posted by

ROMESCO is one of my favorite "sauces".  It's classified as a sauce but it's more of a "spread". 

Delicious tossed in with sauteed seafood, warm beans, salads, pasta or with crusty bread.

Spanish Olive Oil - 1/2 cup

Almonds with skin or without - 1/2 cup (raw, toasted but not salted)

Tomato Paste - 1 small jar (about 1/4 cup)

Salt & Pepper - to taste

1. Mix all ingredients together in a food processor or blender

2. Blend until smooth

3. Use as desired, this will keep refrigerated for two weeks

ENJOY!
