I thought of soffritto, but i thought it was a mixture ofvegetables? Although i've seen the name applied to different veggies. Does it just mean, "cooked veggie base?"

Yeah, I generally think of soffritto as being onions, carrots, and celery but that is up to whoever is cooking I guess. Soffritto in Italian, sofrito in Spanish, mirepoix in French, etc. etc. etc. Gently sauteed, softened, and or sweated, vegies.
