When Chipotle announced their vegan sofritas option over a year ago the vegan world went crazy. Everyone was excited to try the Chipotle Sofritas option. But A lot of people want to know how to make a homemade version of the famous Chipotle Sofritas at home.
Why would anyone want to try and duplicate this popular vegan restaurant dish at home? There are several good reasons including food safety. This is something you risk when you eat out at any restaurant so it isn’t exclusive to Chipotle. But they have certainly had their problems in the past year. The following excerpt from the New York Times pretty much sums it all up.
“Since July, more than 500 people who have eaten in Chipotle restaurants from the Pacific Northwest to Boston have become ill. The majority of them, about 370, were infected with norovirus after eating at a restaurant in Simi Valley, Calif., and a restaurant in Boston. More than 60 people got sick from salmonella poisoning after eating at a Chipotle restaurant in Minnesota.”
