This Roasted Red Pepper Dip is flavorful and versatile. It is similar to Romesco sauce and is made from roasted red peppers, garlic, almonds, basil, red wine vinegar, some spices, and oil. It’s great paired with veggies or your favorite crackers for dipping.

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3/4 cup almonds
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 8 large basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
