Sofrito, a staple in Spanish cooking, is basically vegetables cut in small pieces that are sauteed in vegetable oil until they resemble a sauce.
The one that I usually make is garlic, green peppers, tomatoes, and bell pepper. I add annatto and parsley too.
So when I wanted to make stuffed peppers and had no rice to stuff them with, I came up with this. This is another one of those recipes that could win over any meat lover. It's so filling, and very adaptable- you could add ham chunks to the quinoa if you don't want to go without meat, and end up with an easy, healthy option for dinner. Yum. I'm probably going to be living off of this for the next few days. It's addicting.
