Basic Sofrito

"Another recipe from Ingrid Hoffman's Latin kitchen. She keeps this in her fridge to always be ready to add a little something extra to recipes such as: chicken, beef, pork, potatoes, beans and lentils. You can also use it as a base for soups. It will keep for up to a week in an airtight container in your refrigerator - or you can freeze it in an ice cube tray and use the cubes like bouillon! *For a spicy sofrito, add a chopped jalapeno!"

directions

  • Melt the butter or heat the oil in a saucepan on medium heat. Add the remaining ingredients and cook, stirring often, until the onion is soft and golden and the tomato is broken down and pasty. This should take about 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool.

    Cut this down to one green onion's worth. I have family members that can't stand cilantro so used some parsley. Very tasty. Used on Ceban breakfast sandwich.

    We cant eat hot/spicy foods so this was perfect for us. I used 1/2 of a red onion along with the scallions and a couple roma tomatoes. Since we love garlic in about everything I did add some minced garlic while cooking the mixture down. Topped scrambled eggs (Potatoo Egg Omelet - https://www.justapinch.com/recipes/breakfast/egg-breakfast/potato-egg-omelet.html#page1:comment2438580) with this sofrito and the flavors were terrific. Made and reviewed for Susie's World Tour 2019 - Cuba.

    Quick and easy and a the spices give a different flavor from most types of salsas I've used. Maybe it's cooking the cilantro, not sure but we do enjoy it. No heat like you get in others so perfect for those that would rather not have hot spices, but you could easily add some crushed red peppers if you wanted it.
