Roasted red pepper romesco dip

Roasted red pepper romesco dip | Recipe Renovator
My verson of roasted red pepper romesco dip, which is normally made with toasted almonds. I had seen it a while back in Cooking Light, and clipped it to play around with. I subbed in toasted sunflower seeds, took out the salt and included very little vinegar, making this a yummy treat for people on the migraine/headache diet, low-sodium diet, and other special diets. It’s also dairy-free, gluten-free, and allergen-free. But most importantly, it is rich and hearty with the complex flavor of roasted red peppers, one of my favorite foods.

I have a dead-easy tip for roasting red peppers here. If you like garlic, I have some ideas for how to incorporate garlic into the dip without overpowering it.

Suitable for:

vegan, gluten-free, reduced-sugar, vegetarian, diabetic, low-sodium, and migraine/headache diets

Instructions
  1. Cut the peppers in half and remove the core, seeds, and ribs. Cut slits to flatten, and smush them face down onto a baking sheet. Add one unpeeled garlic clove to pan if using.
  2. Broil for 10+ minutes until blackened. The skin should be blistered.
  3. Use tongs to place in a paper bag, and roll to close. Let sit for at least 15 minutes to cool.
  4. Turn oven to 350F/180C/gas mark 4. Spread the sunflower seeds on another baking sheet in an even layer and toast for 10 minutes. Stir. Place back in oven, checking every five minutes, until evenly golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool.
  5. Peel the blackened skin from the peppers into the trash or compost.
  6. Place all ingredients in the food processor or blender. If you broiled a garlic clove, squeeze the center into the machine, discarding the papery skin.
  7. Pulse until a smooth or chunky consistency, adding additional spice as needed.

To serve as shown, toast thick slices of gluten-free baguettes (I brought this amazing bread home from the New Cascadia Traditional Bakery in Portland, Oregon) on a grill pan or George Foreman grill until crisp. Rub each slice with the cut side of a fresh garlic clove OR a freshly cut tomato. Top with dip, additional fresh parsley, black pepper, and a drizzle of organic extra-virgin olive oil.

    These services usually come at a subsidized or
    no extra cost. In general, Ford makes good quality vehicles and they’re definitely a car manufacturer that you will want to consider when you are shopping for a new
    car. Of course, most people do not need to have their vehicles towed on a regular basis.

    Romesco is a favorite sauce of mine. Jorge and I were at Sea & Smoke yesterday, and I wanted to order a Charred Octopus Salad with Romesco, but they had just run out of octopus! So disappointed. Luckily everything else was really tasty :)

    Your version looks really good! I love romesco with roasted chicken.
