Sofrito

Updated: Jan 29, 2021

Sofrito is traditionally used in Mediterranean, Latin American, Spanish and Portuguese cooking. It's a blend of aromatics like garlic, onion, and cilantro that adds an amazing flavor and can be used in a huge variety of ways.


I always have some in the freezer to use for quick flavoring. I can also be eaten fresh like salsa if you add a little salt and lime!


As you'll see in the photos, it looks different almost every time I make it because I use what I have on hand or what's available to me. Take away, you can't really mess it up, each variation of ingredient will add a unique difference, so experiment.

Recipe:

1 Onion

1 Green bell pepper

1 Red bell pepper / Or mini sweet peppers

1 Pint cherry tomatoes / Or 2-3 romas

1 Large bunch cilantro / 2 bunches if small

4 Cloves garlic

Jalapeño / Optional

Salt / Optional


Directions

Blend all ingredients in a food processor. Put in an ice cube tray, or bag if the ice tray is unavailable, to freeze and save for later.


A blender works too if you don't have a food processor, but changes the flavor slightly because of how fine it blends the ingredients.
