When I served this sauce to my husband, he thought it was an extra tasty marinara. And while I like marinara, the carbs in tomatoes really do start to add up, making this red pepper sauce a better option!

The great news is that this sauce is super easy AND can be prepared in advance! For this recipe I've used roasted red peppers  from a jar – they're so convenient and I love their vibrant color and the char marks! But of course you could always roast your own like I did for my Roasted Red Pepper and Buffalo Mozzarella Salad!

How to Make a Low Carb Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Add the roasted red peppers, garlic paste, dried oregano, tomato paste, red wine vinegar and salt and pepper to a small blender (I use an attachment on my stick blender).

Blitz until a sauce has formed. Taste for seasoning and adjust as necessary.

Transfer the sauce to a bowl, cover, and store in the fridge until required. This sauce would actually make a fantastic low carb salsa! However you might like to reduce the garlic if you intend to serve this sauce uncooked.

When you're ready to cook, pour the sauce into a small saucepan and warm through, letting it reduce just a little.

Serve over cooked chicken, pork, or fish. Shown below with some baked tilapia and delicious spinach Miracle Noodles – only 2g net carbs for the whole 3oz bag!).Tilapia with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce - low carb recipe
