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 a 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.
