    Sofrito Basico

    Incorporate this sauce into a bean dish, soup, or stew or use it as a first step in making other dishes. Save time by making a big batch of sofrito, then storing it in the refrigerator (up to 2 weeks) or freezer (several months). For freezing, a good trick is to solidify the sauce in ice cube trays to make individual portions, then bag the cubes for future use!
