Homemade Creamy Tomato Red Pepper Sauce
Happy 2009 Nude & Eco-Cheap Cooking Initiative and happy #meatlessmonday! Hopefully you are enjoying many a meatless dish tonight, but if you’re out of delicious meatless ideas have I got one for you?!
This one is super simple and delicious. I was actually inspired to make it when eating at Em Chamas (please no nasty comments about getting meatless recipes from a Brazilian barbecue…) They have this fantastic cheese ravioli dish on their buffet made from a sauce of tomatoes and roasted red peppers that was just terrific. Right next to it, they have a tomato-based chicken stroganoff that is light, creamy, and more than a little tangy. So I got the idea to blend them together and make a delicious creamy tomato red pepper sauce.
Better yet, you can make it for less than $11.50 as part of the 2009 Nude & Eco-Cheap Cooking Initiative. If you’re not familiar with the challenge, Shawna Coronado grows chemical and pesticide-free (ie nude) vegetables and I turn them into a dinner for a family for four for less than $11.50. Ready for the recipe?
