Brazilian Feijoada (Vegetarian)

Brazilian Feijoada (Vegetarian) created by Linky

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 came out really good but I used it more as a guideline for amounts of each ingredient and also for technique. I made some substitutions though because of what I had in hand. I didn't have onion (yeah I know) or canned chipotle so I used granulated onion and frozen roasted green chiles that I thawed. I also used vegetable broth because I didn't love the way my bean cooking liquid flavor came out.

    The recipe calls for 5 and a half cups of dried beans, this would make almost 17 cups of cooked beans. Surely it doesn't really call for this many cups of cooked beans. Am I reading the recipe wrong?

    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!

    This tastes a lot like the meat version. We both liked it better the next day. Luckily there were enough left-overs we could both take it for lunch. Instead of Chipotle peppers, I charred my green peppers and that gave the smokey flavor and then added an ancho for spiciness.I used 1/2 butternut & 1/2 white potatoes. DH usually doesn't' like butternut squash, but didn't' even notice it in this dish, as the flavors meld so well. I used canned black beans. So glad to have a vegetarian version of this dish in my life. We had to add salt at the table, so next time I would add it while cooking.
