with Green and Black Beans

Read more

Feijoada is a meaty version of the Brazilian staple dish of cooked black beans, feijão, incorporating beef to create a beautifully rich flavour. Traditionally prepared over a low heat in a thick clay pot and simmered for an hour, tonight’s recipe will prove that you can create the same depth of flavour in double quick time. Twenty minute recipes don’t get more delicious than this one!

Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the conflict in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.
