  • 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)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 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


  • Blend all the ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  • Use right away or keep stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
