Brazilian Chicken with Coconut Milk
This simple chicken in a vibrant coconut milk sauce will fill your kitchen with the enticing aromas of South American cooking. It's great served over pasta or rice.
Fried Rice Cakes (Brazilian-Style)
White cooked rice is combined with fresh chopped parsley and Parmesan cheese and deep-fried to perfection. Great as a side dish. An original from Brazil. Serve hot.
Brazilian Whole Banana Pie
This whole banana pie is a hit in Brazil, mainly in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Almost all the ingredients are natural, except for the margarine. It is also made with whole grains, which contribute for a good health. It supplies a lot of energy and the bananas give an extra dose of potassium. That is why this pie is consumed by athletes and people who practice sports in general. Besides, it is simply delicious!
Chef John's Brazilian Feijoada
My version of this national Brazilian black bean stew uses a variety of smoked meats and is topped with an orange breadcrumb mixture. Serve with white rice and greens to complete this traditional meal.
Wonderful original Brazilian rice! Great served with Brazilian filet mignon stroganoff.
Brazilian Fish Stew
This super easy but hearty dish is full of flavor and absolutely delicious! It's a simplified version of a common Brazilian dish that I remember from my childhood and it's become a favorite even among my kids and I, even though we don't like fish! This can be made easily on the stovetop or in the slow cooker for a no-fail convenience meal. Use salmon in place of tilapia for a stronger fish flavor. Serve with hot rice or warm tortillas.
Brazilian Bom-Bocado (Egg Custard)
I have not translated the name of this little Portuguese-Brazilian pastry because there is not an English equivalent, at least that I know. The translation would be 'good bite.' It is a dessert that brings up childhood memories; my mom would always make it! It's very easy and quick to make.
Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pao de Queijo)
These yummy gluten/wheat free breads are good for those with Celiac disease or gluten intolerance. These are good either served plain, or with marinara sauce. For more variety, try adding a variety of herb seasonings, such as Italian seasoning or try substituting other cheeses for the Parmesan.
Brazilian Grilled Pineapple
Favorite at a Brazilian steakhouse in Dallas. Not sure if this is the exact recipe they use but it tastes very close. Great side for kabobs and steak.
Brazil's national cocktail is so refreshing and delicious! Ask your liquor store to order Cachaca for you if they don't stock it, there's no substitute.
