Kale Sofrito
I love my Ninja!

I’m in love with The Kale Sofrito !

Today I refused to make a 2nd trip back to the grocery store – and stumbled upon a really tasty twist to Sofrito. Kale Sofrito!

Yesterday I wanted to try this recipe from Skinny Taste, Puerto Rican beans and Rice.  The recipe called for a Sofrito made with Cilantro (Is there such thing as sofrito without it? lol) . I’m one of those people that have a STRONG aversion for Cilantro.  If you google it – people either LOVE it or HATE it. It tastes like soap water to me!! Seriously!!


For the longest of time – I swore off this little mexican restaurant down the street from my house because thier tacos tasted as if they cooked them in pans that had been washed but not rinsed out well!!!

Eventually I figured out that it was actually the Cilantro! Therefore I now ask for my tacos sans cilantro ! Smh – I just thought they had shady dishwashers/bus boys lol!!!

 I apologize to every dishwasher I’ve given a dirty look too – it wasn’t you ! It was me!

Anywho – I realized that the parsley that I PLANNED to replace the cilantro with , per usual,  had went bad.  I was going to continue the recipe WITHOUT any green vegetables – buttt it looked so BLAND one everything was blended together!! It NEEDED color!! I looked in my fridge and the only thing that I had (and in abundance) was KALE!



I love kale!! I really do and I love ANY time I have the chance to incorporate this super food into my diet!! SO I did just that ! I didn’t know how it would turn out – but it was AMAZING!!

The rice and beans that I made with the Sofrito was AMAZING!! Check out the Kale Sofrito recipe below!

  6. Alas, another great way to incorporate Kale!

    1. Isn’t it always so amazing to find ways to add in kale?? I HATE cilantro – so I was happy I could sub this for some green color (and added nutrients).

      1. Yea! Ive realized that the key to getting the healthy stuff in is a game of replacing things that are similar in taste and textures and then sneaking in things that blend well
