Dominican Sofrito
“Sofrito is a fragrant blend of aromatics such as garlic, onion, peppers, herbs, etc. It’s a staple in Latin & Carribean cooking and is used to infuse flavor into a variety of savory dishes such as rice, beans, meats & veggies. There are multiple variations to this and even within the same culture, every household has their own unique method of making sofrito. This version is the standard Dominican style sofrito, taught to me by my mother in law, who comes from La Vega, Dominican Republic. This can keep in your fridge for up to 2 weeks, or 6 months in your freezer!”
