    Carrot Romesco Sauce

    July 30, 2017

    Romesco sauce is Spanish in origin, made from roasted red peppers, garlic, extra-virgin olive oil and almonds. This year you will begin to see this sauce everywhere. Chefs will use other vegetables to replace the peppers, and they will use this sauce to garnish other vegetables. Jumping on this bandwagon, this recipe uses carrots instead of red peppers. Carrot romesco sauce pairs great with broccoli. How many of us steam or roast broccoli and then throw cheese on top of it? What if we used the carrot romesco sauce instead? Not only are we saving ourselves on fat, but we are adding in another serving of vegetables!!!! That’s a 2 for 1 deal right there. Enjoy this recipe and test it out on all kinds of vegetables from broccoli to Brussels sprouts.
