Herbed Soffritto

Herbed Soffritto


This herbed condiment is a great accompaniment to grilled meats and fish or as a base for other sauces. It’s so easy and full of flavor.


  • 2 medium yellow onions
  • 2 large carrots
  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • ¾ cup Cobram Estate® Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh tarragon, chopped


1. Begin by mincing the onions, carrots, celery, and garlic fine.

2. Heat the olive oil to medium heat in a thick-bottomed pot and add the vegetables.

3. Sweat the vegetables slowly, stirring with a rubber spatula occasionally. Be sure to not get too much color; adjust heat accordingly. While cooking, season with a few pinches of salt to taste.

4. Cook until vegetables are translucent and simmering. Set aside to cool and fold in chopped herbs.
