Homemade Romesco Sauce

Going to the school during the week means most of the cooking I do is reserved for weekends. Which means by Sunday night, our fridge is the holder of many colorfully tasty culinary experiments, squeezed into whatever jar or container I can find to hold them. And having a fridge full of experiments means that when the potential buyers of your home come look at the kitchen and ask if they can peek inside the fridge, I quietly hide behind a corner so as not to see their reaction to the living experiment that is the fridge.

I’ve always been a bit hesitant to try new sauces because they have the potential to be so finicky, but romesco sauce is virtually foolproof. Coming from the Catalonia region of Spain, it’s a quick blend of roasted red pepper, tomatoes, lemon, garlic, almond butter, spices, and olive oil. It tastes and feels decadent without the saturated fat-laden guilt you’d usually find in a sauce of this tasty magnitude, perfect on everything from pasta to eggs.
