Smoky Romesco Soup
Ever since I discovered the amazingness that is romesco, I’ve been borderline obsessed. Who am I kidding? I L-O-V-E love this stuff. 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. Let’s make some Smoky Romesco Soup!
To make this Smoky Romesco Soup you’ll need:
- 4 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 5 cups vegetable broth, warmed
- 1 cup dried red lentils
- 2 roasted red peppers
- 3 Roma tomatoes, roughly chopped
- ¼ cup almond butter
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp smoked paprika
- ¼ tsp pepper

Making this easy soup has two parts. First, we’ll get the lentils going. We’ll toast some garlic then add broth and lentils, boiling until they’re 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!
