Tomato, Hazelnut and Bell Pepper Romesco Is the Ultimate Veggie Dip

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare the romesco: Preheat oven to 325°F with oven rack in middle of oven. Spread hazelnuts and bread in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 325°F until hazelnuts are toasted and bread is slightly dried, about 8 minutes. Using a towel, rub off hazelnut skins. Set aside hazelnuts and bread.

Step 2

Turn on broiler to high with oven rack in top third of oven. Place bell peppers on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil, turning occasionally, until charred, about 14 minutes. Set oven temperature to 425°F. Transfer peppers to a bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, and let stand 10 minutes. Peel, stem, and seed bell peppers.

Step 3

Tear toasted bread into small pieces; place in a food processor. Add toasted hazelnuts, almonds, and garlic; process until finely chopped, about 20 seconds. Add charred bell peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, oil, vinegar, paprika, salt, and cayenne. Process until almost smooth, about 30 seconds. Set aside.

Step 4

Prepare the fresh and roasted vegetables: Toss together sunchokes, half of fennel, half of carrots, oil, and salt on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast at 425°F until tender, 30 to 35 minutes.

Step 5

Spoon romesco into a serving bowl. Serve with roasted vegetable mixture, radish slices, endive leaves, and remaining fresh fennel and carrots.
