“Common in Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic, sofrito is a blend of herbs and vegetables used in Afro-Latin/Caribbean cooking to season rice, bean, and meat dishes. It has no salt, and appeals to those unfamiliar with Caribbean food because of its authentic taste. The ingredient is vegetarian friendly and can be adapted to accommodate vegans. Adapt the ingredient amounts to suit your personal tastes.”

Not the sofrito I was looking for. Margie's Cuban Sofrito is the closest I've found to what I know as Sofrito. I guess Sofrito is like Ragu, your mama's is always best. This had no flavor. I ended up putting some oil in a pan, and cooking it down to take the bite out of the onion and garlic. I added cumin, salt, pepper, bay leaf and oregano in order to get a similar flavor to what I was looking for. I understand the caribbean has a lot of islands and this mixture of vegetables seems more suited for flavors like allspice, cumin, and habaneros.

I scaled this down and blended into chunks and used in place of salsa. Were all pepper lovers here and it turned out very good. Can't wait to try it in other dishes. Thanks for the post.

I never had sofrito as a american girl but my cuban hhuband and brothers did not like this one at all. They said maybe it Puerto Rican Sofrito but not Cuban. I don't know. I never had it. I though it was OK. but 5 of them beats me. I was so sad. They like it but was not happy that it was not like there mom's. We all have been tring to find a recipe that is Cuban style sofrito to make ropa vija which is my husband fav.
