Romesco sauce is a seriously underutilized condiment that takes practically no time to make. It’s versatile and easily customized to your own tastes. I’ve had several different kinds; some are thick and smooth like this, others are a little more chunky and herbaceous. If you haven’t entered the world of homemade condiments, I suggest you make this one your first! Plus, it’s vegan!
