      first of all it is NOT a soup! Don't you know what you are doing? you are taking a traditional, delicious, food that you share with friends and family and you are putting TURKEY?!?! Try going to your local meat market (and i don't mean a bar) and get all the pork parts you can find and slow cook it for a few hours with traditional Brasilian spices... mean while drink some caipirinhas. Not too many otherwise you'll walk in zig-zag. try that instead!

      Sorry... But this is far from a REAL Brazilian Feijoada. A Feijoada is made from salted pork cuts (feet, tail, ears, ribs, etc) jerked beef and at least 2 kinds of sausage cooked on black beans and served aside with white rice, stewed kale, orange, fried pork lard and other which may be different on other regions. You can eat with a traditional Brazilian drink called "Caipirinha" ("Cachaça", a distilled from sugar cane, with lemon and sugar), or beer, both ice-cold. It's a very fatty dish, very popular here on Brazil and very, very tasty. If you're not on a diet, of course...
