Author Notes: This is a very distant relative to the red romesco you may be familiar with...I can hardy even call it romesco any more! My favorite parts of romesco - the spicy kick and meaty texture - remain. I've replaced the traditional almonds with walnuts for an earthy flavor and added a splash of green with spinach. Romesco inspired by The New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/20/dining/romesco-sauce-recipe.html) —Mari Miyachi
- 3 green peppers
- 1 poblano chili
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 sprig parsley
- 1/4 cup spinach
- 1 date
- 1/2 tablespoon smoked paprika
- 1 lemon, juiced
- Roast the bell peppers and poblano chili until they are completely blackened on the outside. Place them in a paper bag and let them rest for 15 minutes. Peel away the blackened skin and chop the pepper into large chunks.
- In a food processor, mix the roasted peppers and chili with the remaining ingredients. Pulse until well combined. Salt and pepper to taste.
- The romesco can be prepared and refrigerated a couple days in advance. This will make about 2-3 cups of romesco - use it on salads or pastas as well!
