Sofrito BoricuaBy María HummelThe sofrito is one of the most important ingredients of Puerto Rican food, since it is used to make almost all the most important dishes. The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it is very simple, healthy, and also easy to prepare. It can be used to flavor many stews and dishes, including soups and rice.Kale SaladBy María HummelKale is one of the most concentrated micronutrient vegetables full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Because of its texture and strong flavor, it is sometimes difficult to eat it raw. But if the very finely chopped leaves are mixed with the lemon dressing, the flavor will be much softer and the result will be a wonderful salad.Vegetarian SeasoningBy María HummelIt is very common in Latin American cuisine to use the famous "bouillon cubes" or "powdered consommé", either flavored with chicken, beef or tomato. Unfortunately, these products can have a very high sodium level, in addition to other chemical ingredients that could be harmful to health. This recipe provides a healthy alternative for these products, which can be used to give a good flavor to any dish.Cashew Cheese SauceBy Life and Health NetworkUse anywhere a cheese sauce is required.
