Makes 4 batches. Use this mix of slowly sautéed veg as a flavour-boosting base for sauces, soups, stews and casseroles.

Ingredients

Olive Oil

2 tablespoons

Onion(s)

4 large, diced

Carrots, raw

4 medium, diced

Celery, Raw

4 stick(s), diced

Bay leaf, dry

4 leaf/leaves

Garlic

8 clove(s), sliced

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a very large nonstick frying pan set over a low heat. Add the diced onion, carrots and celery to the pan with the bay leaves. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 20-25 minutes, or until the vegetables are very soft and golden. You may need to add a splash of water if the veg starts to stick.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, then remove from the heat and set aside to cool in the pan.
  3. Once it’s completely cool, divide the soffritto into four equal batches and store in the fridge for up to 5 days, or frozen in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
