Fragrant with the flavor of cilantro (aka coriander), this creamy red pepper sauce is a featured element in our Curried Millet Cakes with Creamy Red Pepper Coriander Sauce. It’s also great as a dip for fresh vegetables, as a sandwich spread, or tossed with your favorite cooked pasta. Keep roasted red peppers and silken tofu on hand and you can make this sauce in five minutes. If you are not a fan of cilantro, you can use fresh basil or dill instead.

Ingredients

  • 1 package extra firm silken tofu, drained
  • 2 large red bell peppers, roasted and seeded
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime

Instructions

  1. To roast peppers, preheat the broiler. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Place the bell peppers on the prepared baking sheet. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until charred on all sides, turning occasionally. Transfer to a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand for 10 minutes. Peel off skins; discard skins, stems, and seeds.
  2. Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and puree until smooth and creamy. Refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to use.

What is extra firm, silken tofu. There is extra firm and there is silken. Silken is soft not firm, so I think there might be a mistake in the recipe. I’d like to try it, but I’d like to get it right and not waste ingredients!

Coriander and cilantro are often used interchangeably for the fresh herb as in this recipe’s case, however cilantro is the fresh leaves and stems and coriander is the dried seed.
