Sun-dried Tomato Almond Sauce Recipe #foodfunhop





Sun-dried Tomato Almond Sauce Recipe

This delicious and tangy sauce is great over pork or spread onto sandwiches. I'm excited to use it as an alternative to pesto!

This Tomato Almond Sauce recipe takes about 30 minutes to prepare and makes nearly 2 cups of sauce. Enjoy!


I received a fun challenge--to make a dish using an ingredient that I received as part of my NatureBox Foods snacks! This recipe takes advantage of the wonderful sun-dried tomato almonds that arrived last month! You can enter to win your own NatureBox filled with healthy, natural snacks here!


Ingredients:
  • 1 C “Garden Tomato Crunchies” Almonds from Nature Box
  • 2 onions, quartered
  • 4 tomatoes, quartered
  • 6 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 8 bay leaves
  • 3 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/2 C apple cider vinegar 
  • olive oil
Directions:
Put the garlic and almonds in a frying pan with some olive oil and fry for a few minutes. Set aside, reserving the oil in the pan. Add the tomatoes, onions, bay leaves, paprika, and apple cider vinegar to the pan and cook until onions are translucent, about 15 minutes. 

Discard bay leaves. Place vegetables from pan and almonds and garlic into blender or food processor and puree until smooth and creamy. Return the puree to the pan, combining with the remaining liquid in the pan. Let the sauce simmer for an additional 5 minutes.

(I made this sauce to put over cubed pork. I cooked the pork with the tomatoes and onions and then let the pork simmer with the sauce again at the end. It was delicious and I have plenty of sauce left over to try with some other dishes!)
