The uses for this are as varied as patterns in snowflakes. I use it as a base for stews and soups, for basting fish before broiling or cooking it en papillote style, and even for adding to salsas and bruschetta to impart an ineffable flavor that never fails to please my guests.
You need to be aware of a few potential problems with this sofrito though. First is it contains MSG (monosodium glutamate). If you get a reaction from that then you may want to avoid this particular product. Second, it contains 2565 mg of sodium, which can be a problem for people on a low sodium diet. Finally it contains soy that can cause reactions in some people. These do not necessarily detract from the quality and flavor of this sofrito, but you should be aware of their presence if you or anyone in your family has issues with them.
Not only is this an essential ingredient for many Hispanic dishes, it also enhances a lot of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern recipes. I also keep a few jars of Goya Recaito around when I want a sofrito that is better suited for Puerto Rican cuisine.
I added it to a burger mixture for a delicious zing. It is not spicy but has a subtle hint of cilantro, garlic and sweet peppers. It is delicious as an addition to a tomato sauce. I cook daily from scratch and prefer to make my own low-sodium and natural tomato sauces. Sofrito is healthier and has less sodium than your average canned tomato sauce in a store! It turned my tomato sauce in a delicious and flavorful dish.
I look forward to incorporating Sofrito in most of my dishes. I have found so many uses for Sofrito and that makes it a great investment in great and healthy eating.
