Let's Make It
Combine all ingredients. Refrigerate 2 to 3 days or until ready to use. Freeze for longer storage.
This sofrito sauce can be frozen for later use. Place 2 Tbsp. sofrito sauce in each cube of an ice cube tray. Wrap filled tray with foil or freezer wrap. Once frozen, remove sofrito cubes and place in freezer bag for prolonged storage up to 1 year. Makes 16 cubes. Frozen sofrito cubes can be used in recipes without thawing.
Traditional Sofrito always has tomatoes or tomato sauce added to it. The trick is to add the desired tomato ingredient during cooking to avoid an acid reaction with the fresh ingredients.
