Recipe by lazyme

Feijoada is the national dish of Brazil. It's served everywhere in Brazil, from beach-side stands to the finest restaurants. This version captures the spirit of feijoada minus the meat. Chipotle pepper adds a hint of smoky heat.

This was very flavorful and hearty. I made without bell peppers as they are not my favorite and tossed in a few handfuls of kale that I had around. Thanks for the recipe!
