I’ve often been asked what I use for seasoning in some of my recipes. Sofrito is a funny name but it’s an easy, basic and quick way to add a lot of flavor to your dishes.
I usually make a big batch and freeze what I don’t use that day. You could even fill ice cube trays and after they’ve frozen, place the “cubes” of sofrito into a zip lock bag for later use. Just drop 2-3 cubes into your pot and it will add so much flavor!
Just blend all the inredients.
I use sofrito in dishes such as Red Bean Soup. It’s hearty, perfect for a cold winter meal…
Or any day.
It’s just perfect.
I’ll have to post this recipe soon! It’s a good one 🙂
I use sofrito in black beans, pot roast, and it’s great for slow cooker recipes such as stews and soups.
There are many variations to this but this is what has worked best for me. I leave out some things so that I can later add what I need depending on what I’m cooking (I add bay leaves to black beans, oregano to soup, cilantro to “posole”, etc). You get the idea.
1 green pepper
1 large onion (or 2 medium)
