Easy Blender Romesco Sauce

Easy Blender Romesco Sauce is a bright and delicious sauce originating from Spain. Nutty, garlicky and red peppery. It ticks all the boxes.

With our recipes we decided to add some canned diced tomatoes in order to add bulk and extra yummy flavor. While it is most often served with seafood, it also tastes ridiculously good with chicken, beef, lamb, vegetables, and whatever your heart desires. Really. It’s an all-round great sauce.

It’s definitely a new staple in our household – mainly because it’s super easy to throw together and takes very little hands-on time.

How to Make Easy Blender Romesco Sauce:

  1. Roughly chop an onion and red pepper.
  2. Add said onion and red pepper to a blender, together with all the rest of the ingredients: A can of diced tomato, garlic cloves, paprika, salt, pepper, red wine vinegar and olive oil
  3. Blend it super good – as smooth as it will go! (It will probably still be pretty chunky, but that’s just what Romesco Sauce is all about.)
  4. Pour everything into a saucepan over a medium heat.
  5. Simmer away for about 20 minutes.
  6. And done! Serve it up and be swept away on a flavor wave.
