  • 1 16-ounce jar roasted red peppers
  • 2 medium tomatoes halved
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup packed fresh parsley stems included
  • 2 teaspoons sun-dried tomatoes roughly chopped (they blend better this way)

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt or pink salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon red chili flakes (optional) add if you want a slight spicy kick

  • Use right away or keep stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.


This recipe can also be found in my cookbook The Vegetarian Family Cookbook (where I also serve it over my favorite cauliflower gnocchi recipe!).
