Description

This versatile Whole30 sauce can be used on anything from eggs to fish to vegetables!


Ingredients

  • 1 large red bell pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed 
  • ½ cup slivered almonds 
  • ¼ cup tomato puree 
  • 2 tbsp flat leaf parsley, chopped 
  • 2 Tbsp sherry vinegar 
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika 
  • ½ tsp cayenne 
  • ½ cup + 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil 
  • ¼ tsp salt, divided
  • ¼ tsp pepper, divided

Instructions

Preheat oven to 500°F or set on broil. Place red pepper on baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.  Place sheet pan on top rack of oven. Turn after 10 minutes and then every 5 minutes after that.  About 20 minutes total or until charred on all sides.  

Let the red pepper cool in a paper bag, then remove the charred skin and seeds.  

Next, heat a frying pan over medium heat. When hot, place almonds in pan and toast them, until they are golden brown, about 4-5 minutes.  Stir continuously so they don’t burn.   

Place the first everything except the olive oil, salt and pepper into a food processor and blend until finely chopped.  Then, while food processor is running, slowly pour the oil into the bowl.  Add 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper and pulse until combined well.  You can add more salt and pepper to your taste.

Store in a mason jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
