A soffrito is a flavorful mix of aromatic vegetables, usually onion, carrot, celery and/or green bell pepper cooked gently in olive oil, and is the base for many dishes, like soups, tomato sauces, and braises. When I'm feeling strategy-minded, I chop the vegetables separately in my food processor, then make a double or triple recipe. The night I made the batch pictured above, I set aside a few half-pint containers to freeze, then made a hearty lentil soup with what was left in the pan. The next time I'm throwing together a marinara sauce or big pot of beans, the chopping and sauteing will already be done.
