One of my favorite cookbooks is On Vegetables. Can’t recommend it enough. I also love soffritto. Only not this one. I am glad I made it and I understand direction, just not sure where I could use it.

Traditional Italian Soffritto utilizes Red Onion, Celery and Carrots. The base for this one is Pine Nuts, White Onion and Fennel.

Half way through the cooking, in go the strawberries. The structure, the sweetness… I get it. But, it just feels wrong. It’s like eating crickets. I know in the future I will be eating them, but right now it just creeps me out.
