During one of my rounds of Whole30 I discovered Romesco. It came in one of my Sun Basket meal preps and I loved it so much I had to try and recreate it. I made a batch for our last New Year’s Eve party and served it with a beautiful veggie tray and everyone loved it. It was gone in no time. Now I know that I need to make a double batch for parties because it is just that good.
This is another versatile sauce that is great on steak, chicken, pork, eggs and veggies. I have also used this Romesco with seared scallops and grilled shrimp. I hope you try it and love it too!
