Romesco Sauce

An easy Spanish sauce (with the aid of a food processor or blender), this romesco sauce can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. Excellent with white asparagus, among other things.

Romesco Sauce

Total Time: 15-20 minutes
Servings: 1 1/2 cups


1 or 2 piquillo peppers
1 garlic clove, smashed
1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1/4 cup tomato purée
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
1 teaspoon piment d'Espelette
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Pulse the first 8 ingredients in a food processor until finely chopped. Then, with the motor still slowly running, add the olive oil with the same slow determination and continue to process until as smooth as desired.
