An exceptionally balanced and versatile Mediterranean base blend. Sofrito is a multi-ingredient preparation that contains nutrients that are beneficial for the body. The bioactive compounds found in sofrito included polyphenols, carotenoids, and Vitamin C. Numerous studies have shown that consumption of these nutrients can lower the risk of various cancers and heart disease. Not only do studies show that we do not need rarefied super-foods to maintain our nutritional health, but it also highlights the simple yet oh-so-flavorsome additions this blend can add to everyday dishes.

Sofrito has its roots in the medieval Catalan period. The earliest mention of Sofrito is from the 14th century, where it was made with onion and oil. In most cases, Sofrito is the foundation upon which the rest of a recipe is built. From Spain, it spread to the Spanish colonies, where variations of the blend still exist. In the Dominican Republic, Sofrito is known as ‘sazón’ and is balanced with vinegar for more acidity and annatto seeds for colour. In Puerto Rico it’s called ‘recaísto’ and in Cuba, Sofrito contains onion, bell peppers, garlic, tomatoes, and cilantro. In French cooking it is called ‘mirepoix’, in German it is called ‘suppengrun’ and in the Philippines, it is referred to as ‘ginisa’. In Haiti it is called ‘epis’ and ‘refogado’ in Portuguese. Finally, in Italian, you will hear it called ‘soffrito’. Sophisticated and divine, many cultures consider it their go to secret ingredient and foundation to any given dish and here we have interpretated a historically versatile and recipe base blend to add to your everyday cooking. 
Mouth-watering layers of delicate herbs, dried vegetables and ground spices with a sweet and citrusy foundation.
It smells like your favourite Mediterranean holiday when served with a sweet and tomatoey dish on a balmy summers evening.
This versatile base blend can be used by adding a generous amount to any ground mince meat, poultry, or vegan-based stocks, soups, stews and sauces. If you want to make amazing meatballs, we would use, pork and beef, half and half. Include some of the sofrito blend. Make into ball shapes, pan fry or oven bake and add them to a tomato sauce that also has some of the sofrito blend and serve with some fresh or dry pasta. You really can try it on so many savoury dishes.

  • Some of our blends will be gluten free, but it is important to note that some spices and herbs naturally contain gluten.

    It is also important to note that these have been packaged in a facility that handles, stores, and processes tree nuts and celery. This product may contain traces of celery, gluten, mustard, sesame, soy and nuts.
Always store in a dry place. A pantry, press or cupboard will suffice. We have made that easy by housing our blends in dark amber mason jars under an aluminium lid. Aluminium reflects both heat and light, making it the perfect material for food preservation under its closing. Spice and herb blends typically have a use by date, in our case, 24 months from manufacture.
