Fill your freezer with this savory soffritto soup base, and you can have a delicious, homemade soup in no time. Turn this veggie-based soup into a hearty meal by topping with cooked Italian sausage, shredded rotisserie chicken or even a fried egg, and serve with crusty bread for dipping.
For even more fresh flavor, top the finished soup with more fresh Italian herbs – flat-leaf parsley, marjoram, oregano or thyme leaves.
Soffritto is the foundation of many classic Italian soups and sauces. It consists of sautéed onion, celery, carrot and spices.
