Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce to the rescue of everything!

Eggs, potatoes, sandwiches, pizzas, burgers, salads, bowls, and beyond. Whatever you’re eating, this sauce will wake it up.

It is 5-ingredient basic, but you wouldn’t know that from the taste.

Fresh garlic, lemon juice, and roasted red peppers build up the flavor base, while the almonds and olive oil make for that silky-meets-textured feel that is reminiscent of magic green sauce. Colorful, zippy, salty, and just the right amount of texture – yeah. This sauce is bomb dot com.

Per the usual – everything goes in:
