How to Make Spanish Sofrito?

Whatever meal you are having at your lunch or snacks, Spanish sofrito sauce can add an extra hot and gravy kick to the overall taste. Though both green and reddish textures are available in this recipe, we will be preparing the tomato-flavored one. So, let’s move on to the recipe:

Tomato Sofrito Panera ingredients:

½ Cups of Chopped Onions

2-3 Tbsp of Chopped Tomatoes

2 Tbsp of Chopped Green Peppers for Heat Level

1 ½ Tbsp of Tomato Sauce (Any Choice)

1 Cup of Olive Oil (Any Choice)

½ Tsp of Annatto Seeds

1 Tsp of Coriander (Grounded)

½ Tsp of Oregano and Ground Pepper to Taste

1 Clove of Minced Garlic

Methods of Preparing Step by Step:

Step 1:

Firstly, we have to prepare the vegetable mixture of the sauce layer. Start to heat cooking oil in a frying pan under medium heat. Prepare all the veggies by chopping them for even cooking. When the oil gets heated, release the chopped onions and minced garlic in it.

Step 2:

After that, add chopped tomatoes to the pan to bring a reddish and thick tomato gravy layer. Sauté the mixture repeatedly to avoid excessive burning.

Add water if the mixture gets too much dried. Then sprinkle oregano and chopped coriander to add an enhanced and aromatic flavor to your sauce recipe.

Step 3:

Then release the chopped bell pepper to give a spicy tang to your sauce. Cover the pan and cook all the ingredients for 15-20 minutes. It will increase the thickness of your sauce and will ensure a more gravy texture.

Step 4:

When the sauce gets cooked properly with a smoky fragrance of the veggies, transfer it to a separate bowl and cool for some time. Now, we have to remove the roughness of the sauce to make it smoother.

Step 5:

Pour all the prepared sauce into a food mixer and sprinkle pepper into it. Then blend it thoroughly for a couple of minutes until the ingredients of the sauce get mixed properly. After that, take small jars and make them dry.

Step 6:

Transfer the prepared sauce into the jars and preserve them in the refrigerator. Wait for 5-6 hours until the sauce gets firm together.

Finally, the homemade sofrito sauce is ready to be served along with any of your favorite snacks.
