Vegan Romesco Sauce

Vegan Romesco Sauce

Ever since living in Spain during college, I have had a love affair with Romesco sauce. Packed with the delicious flavors of roasted red peppers, garlic, almonds, and a touch of tomato – it makes the perfect sauce for vegetables, pasta, and it a great addition to sandwiches or veggie burgers. I also love to use it as an alternative to pesto when I am looking for a different flavor profile. If you love spice, consider adding a pinch of cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, or even a chipotle pepper.
