  • Ina medium saucepan combine 16 ounces of Old Havana Sofrito and water. Stir well. Bring to a simmer.
  • Reduce heat to lowest setting, add rice, stir well. Cover pot and simmer 18 to 20 minutes or until rice is tender, stirring every 5 minutes.


Our favorite rice to use is jasmine (slightly floral and a little stickier) or basmati - an Indian rice which is more savory (it has a popcorn aroma!) However any rice will work well - only the texture will be slightly different for each type of rice.
