Feijoada de Feijão Preto com Lombinho de Porco e Abóbora Assada ❦ Portuguese Style Black Bean Stew
What inspires you? For me it is reinventing new ways to "modernize" my Portuguese traditional recipes. It doesn't mean I do not respect what they are, it just means times are changing. We are more vegetarian, more vegan, more health conscience than ever before. Yet I still crave my mother's pork ear and trotter filled bean stews, braising away with delectable aromas I could smell two blocks away as I approached from school. I also want something easier than stewing the meat with the beans and of course leaner cuts without jeopardizing flavor. I think this recipe ticks all my boxes. It is fast, healthy and delicious. It can very easily be adapted to vegetarian by omitting or replacing the pork with mushrooms or tofu.. The addition of butternut squash is sweet and delicious and harmonizes perfectly with the smoky sauce. You can serve it along side some wild rice, wilted collard greens or some warm crusty bread.
Perfect Autumn food...
