serves: 8 servings

This is one version of trito, but with olive oil and onions or garlic as a base, you can make your own trito according to the herbs and aromatics that are available or that you prefer. You may want to make two or three times the amount of trito in the following recipe, covered with a thin layer of olive oil it lasts in the refrigerator for weeks and makes a lovely finishing touch for most soups and pasta dishes.


4 garlic cloves
½ cup carrots, peeled and shredded
½ cup Italian parsley, freshly chopped
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus 1 tablespoon extra if storing


Food Processor;


Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until very smooth. Stop the machine once or twice to scrape down the sides of the container. Transfer the trito to a small bowl and smooth the surface. Drizzle a thin layer of oil over the surface and store in the refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
