  • 2 Whole Red Peppers
  • 2 Whole Roma Tomatoes
  • 5 Cloves Garlic
  • 1/4 Cup Almonds
  • 2 Pieces Gluten Free Bread
  • 1 Tbsp Smoked Spanish Paprika
  • 1/4 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Sherry
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil


  1. Turn on gas stove top on high and char the red pepper on all sides.  Place in a paper bag folded over and steam for at least 20 minutes.  Peel the skin and discard the skin and the seeds.

    Preheat oven to 350F.  Place tomato and garlic in a piece of foil, drizzle with 2 tsp oil, and wrap.  Place the foil packet on a tray, add the gluten free bread and almonds onto the tray as well.  Bake for 5 minutes until bread crisps.  Remove the almonds and bread and place in a blender.  Pulse until the mixture is ground.

    Continue baking the garlic and tomato for another 25 minutes.  Open the foil, and once you can handle the tomatoes, peel them. 

    Add all the ingredients to the blender.  The garlic should be squeezed into the blender.

    Pulse until the mixture looks creamy.  

    Serve and enjoy!
