Gluten Free Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Gluten Free Roasted Red Pepper Sauce Recipe

I love a good burger (sans bun of course!). I have fond memories of going to the pool at the Officer’s Club at Naha Air and Naval Base in Okinawa and ordering huge, juicy burgers loaded with ketchup, mustard, tomatoes, pickles and onions, eating them by the pool with the juices dripping down my arms, the sounds of happy kids splashing away and the occasional shriek from someone being pushed off the high dive by the rowdy boys in the background while the sun beat down on us and a gentle breeze stirred the air. Of course, charging them to my Dad’s account at the O Club was pretty cool too.

My vegetarian sister, Karen, ironically sent us a big box filled with meat products for Christmas so I have been enjoying lots of burger lunches lately.

While there is nothing wrong with ketchup and mustard (except possibly all the sugar in the ketchup) sometimes I like something a little more sophisticated on my burger. This Gluten Free Roasted Red Pepper Sauce Recipe is an easy little topping just packed with flavor. I add a touch of Chipotle Puree for some heat. That recipe follows. The Chipotle Puree is hot, so judge accordingly when adding.
