Romesco sauce is something I discovered a few years ago when writing our Everyday Cooking Cookbook.
We had a lovely market near our apartment at the time, and they had this creamy red sauce that didn’t have dairy called romesco. I was shocked. I’d never seen something so beautiful that tasted so creamy and wonderful that didn’t have dairy! I had to investigate.
Romesco sauce is an incredibly simple sauce that originated in Spain, is incredibly versatile, and typically starts with roasted tomatoes.
