Ingredients for Romesco
About one roasted red pepper – ideal to roast your own but you can buy them in jars (from Papadeli of course!)
Fresh or tinned tomatoes (about half a tin)
A handful of hazelnuts (skinned) or you can use a combination of almonds and hazelnuts
Flat leaf parsley – about 4 sprigs
Good quality extra virgin olive oil – about a tablespoon
Salt, smoked paprika, fresh garlic cloves to taste
Sherry vinegar – about half a tablespoon
It’s easy! Blend it all together. You may like it smoother or crunchy – I like it with a fine crunch so the hazelnuts are still discernible.
If you like it runnier, add olive oil.
What does it go with?
All the vegetables, from broccoli to potatoes, it’s just so good! Also white fish, chicken, ham. Hugely versatile and delicious.
Keeps in the fridge for about 5 days and freezes well!
