Sofrito

Ingredients

  • 2 medium green peppers, seeds removed

Sofrito is the secret ingredient in many Latin Caribbean dishes and it’s so easy to make. It’s a versatile, aromatic puree of tomatoes, peppers, cilantro, onions, and garlic. You may use a food processor or blender for desired results. This recipe makes about 1 quart of Sofrito.

Peel garlic and chop ingredients into sizes that are small enough to fit into a food processor or blender. Place the chopped ingredients into the food processor or blender and blend all ingredients together well.

Tip: If you find it necessary to add liquid, you may add water or olive oil a tablespoon at a time.

For immediate use, store in a glass container. Plastic containers are not ideal because plastic will absorb the odor of garlic and onions. For future use, freeze Sofrito in ¼ to ½ cup portions for use at any time.
