A roasted garlic and tomato sauce that is great as a salad dressing or warm with vegetable noodles. I’ve even used it as a pizza sauce.
This is loosely based on a Romesco sauce, which is a spanish sauce made with roasted peppers and ground nuts. Here I’ve simply roasted garlic and tomatoes, added a bit of chilli for a kick and used ground almonds for the texture. It’s so easy to make that even the Chief Taster could make it. Well, if he knew where the roasting pans are kept in the kitchen. I must go through another orientation session with him…!
There is a LOT of garlic in this sauce, so probably not best to have on a first date or before an interview! Which reminds me of a bar that is in Soho, London called “Garlic & Shots”. They are also in Stockholm and Palma, Mallorca if you are curious about visiting. Everything there has garlic in it. The drinks and the food. Even a garlic ice-cream! Garlic vodka too. The shot menu has about 101 items on it, which probably explains why the memory of going there is a bit hazy..ahem..!
This sauce will store for a week in the fridge and probably a bit longer but as I’ve never let it sit longer in our fridge as once I make it, we are eating this in different forms that week! I’ve put the nutritional information per tablespoon based on the whole sauce yielding about 15 tablespoons of sauce. If you want the total information for the batch, take my figures and multiply by 15. Maths and cooking, together at last!
