Sofrito my way
What is Sofrito? Is an aromatic base for rice, stews ,beans and other dishes. We can prepare the sofrito in different ways. Sometimes I use only green peppers and sometimes I add both green and red peppers. The same with the cilantro and culantro. When I don't have Culantro leaves I just use more cilantro.
So today I'm going to show you how I prepare my sofrito. If you like this recipe don't forget to use #veganndelicious.
