sofrito - ingredientes
sofrito - ingredientes
BACKGROUND Sofrito is a sauteing and cooking condiment used in Spanish cooking where the primary ingredients or base is green peppers, onions and garlic. Sofrito is used in making Spanish rice and stewed and pot roasted meats and all combinations there of. Two key ingredients that make sofrito more that just a pepper and onion mix, are sweet chili peppers and the herbs cilantro and culantro. When shopping for these ingredients it is best to look in Spanish markets. Sweet chili peppers are often sold in tubs or trays and are small bonnet shaped peppers often multi colored and sometimes just green They are identical in appearance to scotch bonnets but lack the heat and in it's stead a unique sweet taste found in NO OTHER peppr. They are referred to as “aji dulce” in Spanish. Cilantro is the more common herb and is the leaf of the coriander plant. It is often confused with parsley. Culantro (Eryngium foetidum L., Apiaceae) also referred to as recao is a broad-leafed herb very similar but much more aromatic and stronger tasting than cilantro. Try to locate both, culantro is preferable for maximum authenticity but, either will do. This is sold in bundles or bunches. Sofrito was often made at the moment of use by placing small quantities of the ingredients in a mortar and pestle and grinding to a paste prior to cooking. It is still done this way in many homes in Latin America and the Caribean. The best method for the modern time-challenged cook is to process all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and freeze in small tubs. RECIPE The exact quantities used in the making of sofrito are subject to taste and the recipes vary from cook to cook. The one recommendation is to not skimp on the cilantro and or culantro and lacking culantro, bump up the quantity of cilantro. This along with the sweet pepper is the basis of the distinct flavor in Caribean/Spanish cooking. Sweet bell peppers5 lbs. Sweet chili peppers 1lbs. Yellow onions6 lbs. Garlic2-4 heads Cilantro/culantro4-6 bunches PREPARATION Peel and cut onions into quarters or smaller if using a blender. Cut and remove stems and seeds from all peppers. Separate and peel garlic into cloves. Cull cilantro/culantro of bad or yellow leaves and wash. Divide ingredients into equal batches for processing. Process into a chunky or slurry consistency according to taste. I prefer a slurry-like consistency. USE Quantity to be used in cooking varies from cook to cook but generally speaking a tablespoon per pound of food is a good amount to use. Heat a small amount of oil preferably olive oil and saute the sofrito to release the flavors. When used to make pot roasts, stews or other meats, add the meats after sauteing and brown the meats before adding additional ingredients.
