Almond Butter Romesco in a two-colored bowl on a gray plate filled with small bread slices with Romesco on them

Smoky, savory, delicious flavor doesn’t need to take all day. Sometimes it’s as simple as combining high-quality ingredients and just enjoying the result. Almond Butter Romesco is a perfect example of that kind of dish. All you need to do is blend roasted red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, almond butter, and other delicious ingredients together and enjoy with toasts, chicken, or vegetables.

Roasted Almond Butter and Maple Glazed Tofu, Squash and Brussels in a close up shot laid on white parchment paper

Roasted Almond Butter and Maple Glazed Tofu, Squash, and Brussels is a genuine triple threat. This dinner delight is vegetarian, full of flavor, and cooks in one pan. It doesn’t take your whole day to prepare either. At any given moment, you are thirty minutes of marinating, a few minutes of tossing ingredients together, and thirty minutes of hands-off roasting away from enjoying a flavor-packed, wholesome, vegetarian meal. Seriously. There’s really no downside to this recipe.
