When it comes to versatile sauces that can elevate your dishes, in a very impressive way, look no further than this delightful, easy romesco sauce. This culinary gem effortlessly complements an array of dishes, from seafood and meat to vegetables and pastas. Welcome to the world of easy romesco sauce – a game-changer for kitchen adventures.

Having romesco sauce on the ready can make weeknight dinners a breeze. A generous stir of this special sauce through cooked pasta creates an instantly satisfying meal that boasts speed and taste. It is also a fantastic dip for entertaining guests; Romesco’s tangy and nutty notes will compliment your cheese or antipasti platter.

While there are countless variations of romesco, they all share a base of vibrant peppers, toasted almonds, garlic and a touch of acidity from lemons or sherry vinegar. To make a truly authentic version, you can opt to roast fresh capsicum, tomatoes, and garlic in the oven. However, my go-to recipe offers a quicker route to achieving that same mouthwatering goodness in a very quick time.

Storing romesco – storing this easy romesco sauce is a breeze:

Cover any leftover romesco with a slick of olive oil & keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.

It also freezes well, in batches, for up to 3 months.

These are just a few great uses for Romesco sauce:

There’s the mouthwatering chicken with romesco featured on page 178 of my cookbook ‘Family.‘ Alternatively, the recipe for fish with romesco and sage is on page 222 of the same cookbook. I love that recipe. Additionally, tossing romesco with warm, roasted vegetables creates something pretty special. And stay tuned for my upcoming pasta recipe in the next post on the Relish Mama blog – it’s a true saviour in our home for busy evenings.

Recently, I had the pleasure of hosting an in-person Spanish cooking class at Relish Mama. We served this easy romesco sauce dolloped on top of a Spanish tortilla and served it alongside Paella. It was such a hit.


I hope you love this recipe, and I hope it inspires many wonderful dishes and shared tables in your home.


I hope this lovely simple recipe for Sri Lankan Easy chicken curry is enjoyed by you and our friends and families soon. I especially hope it feels achievable enough for your midweek meals and gives you lots of comfort at the end of your busy days. It’s not quite the same as something that is cooked for many hours but who has time for that during the week? It is lovely and an absolute treat to prepare and eat. We love it over here.

  • 1 food processor or blender


  • 1 jar 330g jar of whole roasted red peppers drained and roughly chopped
  • 100 g blanched almonds toasted
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled

  • 1 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
  • 1 lemon freshly juiced or 60 ml of Sherry vinegar
  • Sea salt

  • Toast the almonds in a dry frying pan.
  • It really couldn’t be easier to make this romesco, place all of the ingredients (including the toasted almonds) in a blender or a food processor and glitz together.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning, if required.
  • I like the consistency of my romesco to be a little chunky, similar to the texture and consistency of pesto.


Whole roasted capsicums can be found in all supermarkets. They are usually sold in jars near olives and gherkins, etc.
