|Prep Time||10 Minutes|
|Cook Time||15 Minutes|
- 3 Red peppers
- 4-6 Garlic cloves I love garlic so I added lots
- 1/2 cup Hemp seeds
- Pink or Celtic Sea Salt To taste
- Black pepper To taste
- 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp Nutritional yeast
- 1/2 Red onion, large
- Wash red peppers & half them. Remove as much of the 'white' part & seeds as you can as this has a bitter taste that we don't want in our sauce.
- Place the garlic cloves under the red peppers on a parchment or a foil-lined baking tray & broil them on 'high' for about 12-15 minutes until the tops start to turn black. Wrap the roughly chopped onion in foil & place in the oven as well for a few minutes. Removing when they are soft.
- Then remove the peppers from the oven & place them in a glass bowl & cover with foil to allow them to steam for a few minutes. Or while making sure to be careful not to burn yourself cover them with foil while still on the baking tray. I did this with oven mitts on, & made sure to fold in the sides to prevent air from releasing. Steaming the peppers by doing this allows you to peel off the skins much more easily.
- After about 10-15 minutes carefully (you may need to let them cool a bit longer so you don't burn yourself) remove the skins from the peppers & discard. Place the skinned peppers into a powerful blender, along with the roasted garlic & onion
- Pulse on high for a minute or two until smooth. Then add the hemp seeds & continue for another minute or two until creamy. Add the nutritional yeast, pink salt & black pepper to blend one last time until creamy. Taste as you go & add more S&P as needed
- You can use this sauce on anything- I added it to a saucepan with sauteed veggies, zucchini noodles, a dash of bone broth, & some grilled chicken! Topped with fresh black pepper & served! It was a delicious meal & we had lots for leftovers!
