Here’s a wonderful recipe for Brazilian feijoada. It’s a lovely hearty zingy healthy dinner with black beans and some vegan sausage - it’s incredibly tasty and only takes 20-30 mins to make.
Peel and finely chop the onion, chilli and garlic.
Chop the veg into bite-sized pieces (peel the sweet potato).
Fry or bake the sausages first, according to pack instructions, set aside and when cool, chop into bite size pieces.
Drain and rinse beans, leave aside.
Heat a non-stick pan with 1 tbsp of oil over a high heat, add the chopped onion, chilli and garlic, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 2-4 minutes until the onions start to brown and smell delicious.
Add your bite sized chopped veg to the pan, 2 tbsp of water, the spices and seasonings and cook for approx 10 minutes stirring occasionally with a lid on the pan.
Remember to stir occasionally to stop veg from sticking and burning to the bottom, cook until your veg is soft and nearly cooked through
Add your beans and sausages
Add the veg stock, lime juice, thyme, by leaves and tamari bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer, cook for approx 10 minutes or longer if you would like a thicker sauce.
Taste the dish for seasoning before serving and add salt or pepper if required.
Garnish with fresh coriander, lime juice and zest, serve and enjoy!
