GREEN PEPPER SOFRTIO

Let's Get Saucy! This is a raw version of the many variations of green pepper sofrito. Sofrito is made many different ways around the world and can also include red peppers and/or tomatoes. It can also be cooked in olive oil, depending on the location.

This version is relying on the green peppers to act as part of the "juiciness" to this quick sauce. 

Cilantro is often times the star, but I love a good blend of fresh herbs together, like cilantro, basil and mint. It's shockingly incredible how delicious this condiment is. Parsley could be a nice addition as well. 

Did I mention the versatility of it?  We often use it when cooking with coconut milk,  boosting the flavor in avocado, quick green verde sauce, base for a quick savory yogurt just to name a few. 

Also, for those of you who need to buy the small bags of fresh herbs in the stores and can never find a way to use them all up, this is a great way to do so! You can double up on the recipe and put them in ice cube trays for another day.

Enjoy!
