Recaito: Latin Cilantro Seasoning Base
Recaito
is a seasoning base for beans, rice, soups and stews. By itself it has a very strong flavor, but added to dishes, it provides a flavorful base. I recently made recaito from scratch at a cooking class I was teaching. One of the attendants wanted to eat it with chips. He soon found out, that it was a lot stronger than he thought. Funny lesson!!!  In this recipe I use cilantro since it is readily available. In Latin America and the Caribbean an herb called recao is commonly used. Recao is a deep green tapered leaf with serrated edges about the size of the middle finger(sorry!). It’s flavor is intense, more so than that of cilantro.
