It's comforting, healthy, and vegan. It's black bean stew (feijoada), Brazilan-style! But instead of using beef or pork, we will make it using only plant-based ingredients.
Feijoada is a staple stew in many countries, from Portugal to South America, and even some old Portuguese colonies in Asia, like Macau and Timur. Although the recipe differs by country, the common ingredient is beans (feijãos). Brazilian feijoada uses black beans, and that's what we are using here. You can use white cannellini beans if you prefer, like in the original Portuguese recipe.
In our recipe, we kept all the classic ingredients, like rice, veggies, and oranges. But to make it vegan, we replaced meat with a few more yummy veggies. We opted for carrots and kale, which go so well together. Feel free to experiment with your favourites! We give out some more vegan options in the FAQ section below.
Pairing oranges and beans is quite unusual, right? That's what makes this recipe so brilliant! We love incorporating recipes from across the globe on Foodaciously. You never know what amazing new flavours you'll discover until you try them.
And as usual, we try our best to help you cook food that is truly healthy and accessible. That's why we try to remove as many allergens as possible from our recipes. On top of being vegan, this black bean soup is also gluten-free, wholesome, and makes for a full, balanced meal.
