Feijoada - Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Feijoada is a well known and a popular Brazilian stew which is prepared with black beans along with meats, but i tried making them as a vegetarian stew using veggies and black beans..This stew is originally developed by the slaves to get use of less meat, but here am gonna make this black bean stew with vegetables spiced with garlic cloves, cumin powder, pepper powder etc..This goes for bit of work eventhough this stew is truly worth to try out...Serve this delicious and nutritious stew with steamed rice and greens, its a complete,filling and wholesome food..

Brazilian Black Beans Stew

2cups Black beans (soaked overnight)
2nos Bayleaves
2nos Garlic (chopped finely)
1no Tomato (chopped)

For Stew:
1no Onion(big & chopped)

1no Celery rib (chopped)
2nos Garlic cloves (chopped)
1no Small dry chilli
1tsp Cumin powder
1tbsp Dry oregano
Pepper powder
Salt
Parsley leaves (chopped)

Pressure cook the soaked beans with bay leaves, garlic and tomatoes for 3whistles...Meanwhile heat a enough olive oil and saute the onions,carrots, garlic and celery until the onions turns transculent, now add the cumin powder, pepper powder, dry chilli and oregano, cook for few minutes...add the veggies to the cooked beans and enough water to the beans and veggies, the mixture should be soup not dry..

  10. Good one Priya.

    I am having outside food after the visit to Mumbai and it is almost boring. Yesterday I had prawns roast and it was like chilly roast. Today I had chana masala in my lunch and it was also spicy.

    I made a decision not to have any food from outside and to start cooking again.

    The stew looks good. I will give it a try.
