A few years back, I used to live in Northern California in Marin County and my husband and I were obsessed with this restaurant in town, where they served really high quality pasture raised and grass fed meats, cooked to perfection.

One of my favorite dishes on the menu was their pork chops served with roasted red pepper sauce. The sauce was so tangy and wonderful, and it was the perfect combo with the meat. Even my husband, who hates peppers, loved that sauce. I recently started thinking about that meal and decided to recreate that sauce at home, and I’m obsessed with the result!

    I love a good red sauce and the bell pepper gives it that perfect amount of sweet and smokey! Also so into the use of nutritional yeast and coconut milk! Definitely pinning this recipe to make later.

    Oh yum! Love all of that garlicky goodness and the fresh basil in there too. Such delicious flavors with the roasted red peppers.

      I wouldn’t recommend it. Since there’s coconut milk in the sauce, it might separate once defrosted and become grainy in texture.

    I love recipes that blend vegetables into the sauce. For kids, I think it’s a great way to introduce them to new flavors and foods they might not try on their own. I can’t wait to try this!

    I’ve made sauce from roasted red peppers before and love it! The flavor reminds me of buffalo wing sauce. I love that this one is made creamy with coconut milk, and the addition of garlic sounds awesome! I’m looking forward to trying it ?

      Yes, that should work. It might turn out a bit thinner but the taste will still be good!
