Pasta with Romesco Sauce

Italians call Romesco sauce a Spanish pesto – while the Spanish would call pesto a Spanish Romesco.   There are many recipes on-line you can try – our favorite DIY recipe comes from Gourmet Aug 2006, which can be found at Epicurious.com (click HERE). We couldn’t find any store-bought sauce that comes close to the homemade version – and that’s why we created the Serious Foodie Romesco Sauce.  Our Romesco sauce is made in small artisan batches which gives you a way to make a restaurant-quality, quick, healthy meal or side dish without the hassle of gathering lots of ingredients – and taking time – to make your own Romesco.

Grilled Shrimp with Romesco Sauce

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text] Italians call Romesco sauce a Spanish pesto – while the Spanish would call pesto a Spanish Romesco.  Either way, herb sauces are a very quick way to bump up the flavor profile of almost any grilled dish – but especially shellfish.  Our research on Romesco sauce shows that it was literally made for shellfish, which was once considered the fisherman’s meal. While you can make your own Romesco (there are plenty of recipes out there), the Serious Foodie Romesco Sauce pulls all the ingredients together for you.  This award winning sauce uses fresh ingredient, is gluten-free, and non-GMO.

Strata & Romesco Sauce: Fancy Egg Casserole by Another Name

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text] Whether you spell it strata or stratta or simply egg casserole, you find this savory egg bread pudding throughout Europe – and anywhere else where you have leftover bread.  You always start with bread, eggs, and cheese – then you decide what else  you’d like.  You can keep it strictly vegetarian with an array of possibilities – or you can go in the carnivorous direction by adding various meats.  Think quiche when constructing the ingredients for your  strata. We did a survey of on-line recipes, and found quite a few that we liked (the best were on Martha Stewart, of course), and tried a few in our test kitchen.  Some failed because of lack of taste or texture –  so here we will give you a fool-proof version, then add some real class with the Serious Foodie Romesco Sauce.  [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_separator color=”grey” align=”align_center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text] The keys to a good strata are few but all important: Find the best ingredients.  If you see some wonderful in-season vegetable at the store or farmer’s market, grab it (asparagus is quite brilliant right now). You must start with dried out bread – either stale, or toasted.  We preferred toasted bread for our […]

Introducing the Romesco Finishing Sauce!

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text] We’re excited to introduce our Spanish-inspired Romesco Sauce from the Serious Foodie.  Romesco sauce originated in Northeast Spain, and is typically made from nuts (almonds, pinenuts, hazelnuts), garlic, peppers, and sometimes tomatoes.  Our version uses red roasted peppers, roasted tomatoes, garlic, and the unusual Lemon Drop pepper to add  a bit of a kick. The Romesco sauce is often served with fish and shellfish, and also matches well with chicken, lamb, and vegetables. Our version of Romesco sauce also matches very well with eggs – here we show the sauce matched with an asparagus, brie, and Serrano ham omelet.  The salad accompaniment was dressed with a simple lemon vinaigrette. You can find our Serious Foodie sauces at one of our local partner gourmet stores, or order on-line at www.serious-foodie.com. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
