With the right seasoning, even a virtuous chicken breast or handful of raw vegetables becomes something to savor. Enter romesco: "I'm obsessed with it,” says Erin Alderson, the -Sacramento-based author of the vegetarian cooking blog Naturally Ella (, @naturallyella), as well as the cookbook The Easy -Vegetarian Kitchen. She uses the bold, smoky sauce on grain bowls, crudités, and anything else that needs some oomph.

How to Make It

Toast sunflower seeds in a small frying pan over medium heat, shaking often, until fragrant and lightly browned, 4 to 6 minutes. In a food processor, whirl the remaining ingredients together until fairly smooth. Season to taste with more salt if you like.
