Roasted Red Pepper Pine Nut Dipping Sauce

This sauce is simple and delicious. Serve it alongside a frittatta or use it as a dip to liven up a raw veggie snack.

1/2 cup roasted red peppers*
3 Tbsp. pine nuts
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/2 tsp. salt

Put all ingredients in a small food processor and pulse until blended. If you'd like a thicker sauce add more peppers or for a thinner sauce more oil. Add salt to taste if desired. If you only have a large food processor or blender, I would suggest doubling the recipe.

*I've never been very successful at roasting peppers myself - I buy them in a jar. Take a gander at the ingredients list before purchasing. Some brands include sugar. Pull the peppers out of the jar with a fork, so most of the liquid drains off.
