This roasted red pepper sauce is perfect for pasta, as a spread, or a dip! Try it with chicken, fish, fries, sandwiches and more.


  • 16-ounce jar roasted red peppers, liquid drained
  • 1/4 cup roasted unsalted almonds
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons heavy cream or 1/4 to 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese*


  1. Place the garlic in the blender and blend until finely chopped. 
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend. Taste and adjust salt as necessary. 


*If you’re using this sauce for pasta, the cream is helpful for adhering to pasta. We suggest blending in both the cream and Parmesan cheese to make this a pasta sauce. If you’re using it as a dip or sauce for protein, these ingredients aren’t necessary. The 2 cups of sauce works with 1 pound pasta.
