Red Pepper Sauce

Prep: 5 minutes Cook: 30 minutes

Serves:Makes 1 cup


  • 2 large red bell peppers, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1 small onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp prepared horseradish
  • 1 tsp chili garlic sauce


Place the peppers, onion and garlic in a food processor and process until quite smooth. Transfer to a pan and add the remaining ingredients. Cook, uncovered over low heat for at least 30 minutes to intensify flavors and reduce sauce slightly. Season with a bit of sea salt, if desired, before serving.

Hint: This makes a great dip for pita bread, a spread for crackers, a topping for griddle cakes, or a sauce for pasta or spaghetti squash. If you like your foods a bit spicier, add more of the horseradish or chili garlic sauce to taste.
