A roasted red pepper sauce with a touch of heat is easy to make and packed full of flavour. It's a versatile sugar free and gluten free sauce to keep in your fridge.
I've used this sauce on vegetable noodles, in a wrap and as a pizza base. You could use it over some chicken or fish too. Or perhaps add some vegetable stock and have it as a soup!?
How to make roasted red pepper sauce
This is a simple sauce to make. All of the vegetables are roasted, then blended until smooth. That's it!
For the preparation you will need a red pepper, tomatoes, onion, garlic and red chili peppers.
Roast and then when cool enough, remove the skin from the pepper. Place in a blender and puree until smooth.
Add Parmesan cheese and a few tablespoons of cream for a creamier sauce.
I keep the tomato seeds in but if you want a smoother sauce, sieve before placing in a storage jar.
