This method uses sofrito, an aromatic mix of herbs and spices that's used as a base for cooking countless Caribbean dishes. You can buy prepared sofrito in most supermarkets or Asian and Caribbean markets. Or, better still, get it from my cookbook, Puerto Rican Cuisine in America. The red wine in this recipe was influenced by my mother, of blessed memory, who received the tip from a Cuban friend. Click here to see The Basics of Cooking Beans and 3 Easy Recipes

Paella de Marisco
In order to prepare an authentic paella, there are seven essential ingredients: the paella pan, bomba rice (always), saffron, sofrito, extra-virgin olive oil, passion, and love. Sofrito is an important part of the paella.  It is a concentrate of vegetables that will bring flavor to the rice. You can add 4 quartered small artichoke hearts, or roasted red peppers, cut into strips, with the rice.   Some people use the pulp of 1 or 2 dried and soaked ñora peppers, instead of pimentón.

Sofrito is the base for most Puerto Rican dishes, and this one is better than store bought (difficult to find in the stores in the Western United States). This can be added to beans, rice, soups, stews, you name it.

Sofrito is a staple in Latin dishes to add flavor and depth. I got this recipe from a great friend about a year ago and fell in love with it. I use it in just about everything. Use sofrito as the first dish ingredient by adding it to a hot pan with olive oil. Sauté it for a minute or two before adding remaining ingredients. I've also used it as a rub for meat and chicken. Enjoy!

"This is the one indispensable, universal, un-live-withoutable recipe. Having said that, it is incredibly easy to make with ingredients you can find at the supermarket. And if you can’t find all the ingredients I list below see the note that follows for a very simple fix. What sofrito does is add freshness, herbal notes and zing to dishes—you can do that with the onion, garlic, bell pepper, cilantro and tomato alone. In my house, sofrito makes its way into everything from yellow rice, black bean soup, sauce for spaghetti and meatballs to braised chicken and sautéed shrimp. Not only that, it freezes beautifully, so in about In 10 minutes you can make enough sofrito to flavor a dozen dishes. I’m telling you, this stuff does everything but make the beds. You will change the way you cook. I guarantee it." -Daisy Martinez
