La Sofrita Benefit Pop Up25Feb 2017- 5:30 PM -La Sofrita will be serving up more Puerto Rican deliciousness at Assembly‘sPOPUP on Saturday, February 25th.
Featured entrees include Garlic Mojo Chicken. These are organic chicken thighs bathed in a savory and aromatic garlic mojo, then pan fried in organic coconut oil, to add an extra layer of island flavor (not to mention a healthy dose of brain goodness)!!
Shrimp a la Criolla will also be featured. These are beautiful shrimp simmered in a gorgeous tomato-white wine broth, with sofrito and manzanilla-stuffed olives. Served atop Puerto Rican rice.
Empanada choices for the night include traditional beef picadillo (organic ground beef, sofrito, manzanilla-stuffed olives, and raisins); ham and cheese, with guava paste and jalapeno, a lovely play of savory, sweet, and spicy; and vegetarian, made with kabocha squash, spinach, leeks, red bell pepper, sofrito, and goat cheese.
All entrees will be served with Puerto Rican achiote rice, stewed pink beans (habichuelas rosadas), and avocado-tomato-cucumber salad in homemade garlic-citrus-cilantro vinaigrette. If you haven’t had Puerto Rican rice and beans, I promise you, you’re going to love them!!
We’ll also have yuca fries and tostones (twice-fried green plantains) drizzled with garlic-olive oil. You think you like French fries? Wait til you try these!!
A percentage of the proceeds for this pop up will be donated towards the development of the Scotts Valley Sports Complex. As the mama of a former SV athlete, my heart’s in this one. xo
Hope to see you there! Buen provecho!
