Romesco Sauce

Romesco sauce is a Spanish derived magic elixir originally created to top fish. It is rich in toasted almonds, peppers, and whole tomatoes rich with olive oil and garlic and other spices. It’s a win for most dietary types in that it is vegan, gluten free, and low carb.  Yes to healthy, filling, quality fats!

The consistency and flavor will take any seafood, poultry, or veggie dish to the next level! The recipe I blended makes a large amount of servings so feel free to cut it in half or store in the freezer for future meals. I prefer to bake it on top of the meal so the flavors melt.  If you love our romesco sauce and want to add more variety to your everyday protein and vegetables, try,..

Can’t you tell we love sauces + flavors? Eating healthy DOES NOT have to be boring! Seriously! Enjoy it + let your taste buds go to a PARTAY!
