Recently, a friend of mine had her second baby in less than two years, and was really struggling. I wanted to bring food to help her out. Since they are vegetarians, I asked my friend Lishie, who is a former veg and has a veg sister, for some inspiration for food that would travel and/or freeze well.
She gave me a few suggestions, and this is the one I chose.
What a wonderful way to use up or take advantage of the bounty of summer produce. This was really easy (once I figured out an easy and effective way to roast the peppers) and quite tasty. It's such a basic recipe, you could easily spice it up by adding some crushed red peppers, or change the flavor with some easy additions (mushrooms? green peppers?) Lishie suggested making a lasagna using this sauce, which sounds outrageously good!
Spanish Roasted Red Pepper Sauce Delish
- 5 red peppers
- 3 medium tomatoes or 14 oz tomato sauce
- 1 small Onion, diced
- Olive Oil
- 3 TBSp Heavy Cream
- S & P
Place the red peppers & the tomatoes on a baking sheet & sprinkle with olive oil. Roast them under the broiler until they are blackened, roasted. Allow to cool.
Transfer the veg to the food processor & puree with a little more olive oil.
Meanwhile, saute the onion is a sauce pan on medium-high. Add the pureed mixture & stir. When the sauce is nearly heated through, add the cream. Add S & P to taste.
