Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 10 mins
Course: condiment
Cuisine: Spanish
Servings: 2 cups

Ingredients

  • 4 red bell peppers cored, and seeds removed
  • 4 small tomatoes
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 slice toasted bread crusts removed, bread broken into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 cloves garlic unpeeled
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment, and place tomatoes, bell peppers, and garlic on it. Roast in the oven until tomatoes are wrinkled and lightly charred in spots and garlic is soft, about 1 hour. Let cool and remove skin from the tomatoes and peppers, and peel the garlic.
  • In a blender or food processor, combine everything but the olive oil. Once the ingredients are mostly blended, start drizzling in the olive oil while running the blender. Blend until you reach your desired consistency.
