Feijoada Recipe (Spicy Goan Black-eyed Peas Stew)
Feijoada is a typical Portuguese stew usually made with beans and meat. It has become a famous Goan home-comfort food and can be easily adapted to be vegetarian. In this recipe we use black-eyed peas, but you could also substitute it with any other beans you have on hand. Legumes are a low-fat, high-protein source that is rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidant compounds and dietary fiber. Excellent source of nutrients for a diabetic-friendly diet, the Feijoada stew can be had with rotis, rice, a slice of bread, or even just as it is. Combine it with a hearty salad and it’s a whole meal in itself.
