roasted red pepper spread

Oh. My. Word.

This is the tastiest, creamiest, most fantastical sauce I have ever conjured up. The best part is that it only involves 6 ingredients, all of which you probably have in your kitchen right now. I can eat it by the spoonful, and often do, though I restrained myself long enough to try it in a sandwich today: spread on toast, topped with cucumber slices, tomato, spinach leaves, avocado, and sprouts. This sauce adds a serious flavor kick to just about anything! Try it with sauteed kale, zucchini noodles, vegetable crudites, grilled eggplant, tofu scramble, roasted potatoes, or rice and beans. The sauce will keep for about a week in the fridge so experiment with different meal options. Be sure to leave a comment below telling me your favorite way to eat the roasted red pepper spread! 


roasted red pepper spread
vegan recipes | makes about 3/4 cup

1/2 cup Grapeseed Oil Vegenaise (or substitute 1/4 cup olive oil)

1/4 cup roasted red peppers with juice + 1/8 cup roasted red peppers without juice

5 large sun-dried tomatoes, chopped (about 1/4 cup)

1 medium garlic clove, chopped

1 teaspoon cumin powder

pinch of sea salt

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until desired consistency. Add more olive oil or roasted red pepper juice to thin if necessary. I prefer mine a little chunky.


How do you eat your roasted red pepper sauce?

    • Yay! You will LOVE it! It is super flavorful. I am going to post a sauteed kale salad recipe next week, but to give you a basic run down: kale, onions, garlic, sundried tomatoes, squash & balsamic vinegar. Let me know how your meal turns out 🙂

  1. Just made this. Fecking fantastic. This will be a regular of mine for the rest of my breathing life. You remember that. And I thank you. Don’t diminish this. This is not a hobby, this is not frivolous. In a world of people dying from deadly nutrition there might not be anything more revolutionary and changing than what sticks on the end of our fork. Mothers and fathers and husbands and wives and brothers and sisters and friends, agonizing over their dying loved ones in a cold hospital room, because of their their poor eating habits and their lack of education over the matter. This is what should be taught in school. God bless Jamie Oliver. Teach this wonderful, magical roasted red pepper spread. We are in the worst health epidemic this forsaken world has ever known.

    So teach this. Blog this, write this, spread this, show this, and sing this. They give us their swine’s flesh and pork fat and we bomb them with bell peppers and pomegranates. Because we are in a war, and our minds and bodies have become enfeebled, and have already become of those lifeless degenerates so portrayed in Wall-E?

    Pure factual science supporting the validity of a vegan lifestyle. Discussing everything from protein, to the truth about calcium and milk (i.e. top milk consuming countries have highest levels of osteoporosis), to the increasing diseases among animals:

    We are in a war. And we will fight it with our forks and with our keyboards and with our voices.

    • Firstly, I love you.

      Secondly, amen! Nearly ever dis-ease, illness, ailment, bug, discomfort, malady, and complaint can be traced back to what enters our bodies, whether through our mouths, skin, or lungs. The twentieth century birthed a revolution in the food industry with the advent of corporate giants like Nabisco, Campbell’s, General Mills and Hershey’s that took fresh, nutrient-dense foods and mutated them into genetically modified, chemical-laden, microwavable, instant, mass-produced, synthetic foodstuffs. This SAD (Standard American Diet) world drives people to eat out of boxes, cans and drive-through windows. Nutrition has been processed out of the modern diet.

      Pollutants abound in our modern world. Clean drinking water is becoming scarce, the air we breathe is making us sick, and fertile topsoil is quickly being exhausted. Now corporate giants and the government are blatantly poisoning us with hydrofracking. Many of the products we fill our homes with are even toxic! The good news is that NONE of this is necessary. Every day we have a choice to support sustainable energy and agricultural practices through our consumption decisions. Promising your body organic plant-based foods is the answer to our modern world’s self-inflicted nutritional dilemma; fresh, organic food is essential to eliminate pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, artificial additives and loads of harmful and toxic chemicals from your diet and Mother Earth. Eating local foods further reduces your carbon footprint by lessening transportation-to-market pollution.
