Ever since I discovered the amazingness that is romesco, I’ve been borderline obsessed. Who am I kidding? I L-O-V-E love romesco. Because not only is it an absolutely foolproof sauce that takes less than 5 minutes to make, it’s perfect on everything! I put it on veggies (like these asparagus) and breakfast tacos and sandwiches. It is probably the most under-appreciated sauce like…ever. But today we’re changing that with this romesco-inspired Roasted Red Pepper Soup!

Making this easy soup has two parts. First, we’ll get the lentils going. We’ll sauté some garlic then add broth and dry lentils, boiling until the lentils are soft and delicious. While that cooks, we’ll blitz together a quick romesco sauce.

Romesco has some ingredients you wouldn’t usually associate with sauces (i.e. almond butter), but the ingredients work together to create something I can only describe as…magical? Yep, magical. So you’ll blitz together the romesco ingredients (in either a food processor or blender), then pour into your cooked lentil broth. That’s it!
