With a glut of vitamin C rich, juicy, baby plum tomatoes about at the moment I couldn’t resist throwing this cheeky sauce/salsa together this week. Traditionally made using all roasted ingredients I’ve tried to simplify it for a mid-week super. This Catalonia sauce is amazing mixed through pasta, served with steak, grilled fish or lamb chops. If that doesn’t float your foodie boat, try it topped on asaparagus, mixed through quinoa or cous cous and even served on top of toasted Ciabatta and drizzled with lashings of extra virgin olive oil.
Roasted Red Peppers, Ripe Tomatoes, Blanched Almonds and Garlic….yes, yes, yes, yes pleasasssse!!
