Sofrito Recipe

I love to cook latin food. I grew up in a Dominican household and the smell of delicious home cooked meals permeated every corner of our home.  As I got older and explored foods from other cultures nothing is as comforting as coming back my roots. If I had to point to the source of our delicious cuisine I would definitely say it’s our cooking base, Sofrito. What is sofrito you ask? Sofrito is a base used in many latin dishes to add flavor and depth to a dish. Every household is different so sofrito varies greatly depending on the latin country you are in. Here is my personal sofrito recipe.
