I am back! Yay!
I’m going to start this post by apologizing for having neglected this blog for so long. I really have no excuse other than the fact that I just got caught up in many other things and took no time for writing. On the bright sight, I am back very excited and looking forward to continue writing about lifestyle, food, mommy-hood, my learning experiences and a few tips I’ve learned along the way.
Talking about tips, I want to share with you all my recipe for making Sofrito. Sofrito is a mixture of aromatic ingredients mainly used in Spanish cooking. I use it to season meats and to cook Spanish rice dishes such as Moro (rice with beans or guandules) or Locrios (rice with meat). I also use Sofrito to make Sancocho, which is a delicious stew dish from the Dominican Republic, and many other dishes.
This recipe is very convenient for busy women because it reduces the time you would spend chopping everything up. I know it makes my cooking days a lot easier.
- 1 bunch of cilantro
- 1 bunch of culantro
- 1 bunch of scallions
- 2 big green bell peppers
- 3 medium red onions
- 3-4 heads of garlic (peeled)
- 10 small Aji Dulce Dominicano (optional)
Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until mixed. Transfer the mixture into a plastic container, cover it and put in the refrigerator. This will keep the Sofrito fresh for up to a month.
I hope it serves you well.
