Feijoada (Brazilian Black Bean Stew)

(The Best Years in Life) During the recent Olympics in Rio, a segment on TV had two reporters eating and raving about Feijoada, a black bean stew dish that is a Brazilian favorite. We choose a very highly rated recipe from the AllRecipes site and made a few healthy substitutions and suggestions. This is certainly a meaty dish (sorry vegans!) and thus the key to making it healthy will be choosing the right kinds of meats. After all, It isn't meats that make a dish unhealthy, it's the kind of meats! Where possible go with organic and/or additive free meats and you will be doing your health a big favor. You will almost assuredly be doing your taste buds a big favor and may well find your self raving about this dish like the reporters at the Olympics.

Here is what the original recipe creator L. Ireland had to say about her recipe:

"This is my version of a traditional Brazilian black bean stew that maintains the rich, smoky flavors famous in Brazil. Additional meats, including sausage, may be added if desired. This is excellent served over brown rice."

Ingredients:

1 (12 ounce) package dry black beans, soaked overnight
1 1/2 cups chopped onion, divided
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 smoked ham hocks
8 ounces diced ham
1/2 pound thickly sliced bacon, diced
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 bay leaves, crushed
1/8 teaspoon ground coriander
Himalayan pink salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (optional)

(As always, The Best Years in Life recommends choosing organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe. Also, wash all fruits and vegetables before cutting or adding to the recipe.)

Instructions:

1. Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven. Add 3/4 cup of chopped onion, green onions, and garlic; cook and stir until softened, about 4 minutes. Pour in the soaked beans and fill with enough water to cover beans by 3 inches. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer uncovered for 2 hours, or until tender.

2. While beans are cooking, place ham hocks in smaller pot with 1/4 cup of the chopped onion. Cover with water and simmer, until meat pulls off of the bone easily, about 1 hour. Drain and add to the beans.

3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place ham, bacon, and remaining onion in a baking dish. Bake 15 minutes or until mixture is crispy.

4. Drain the bacon and ham mixture, and add to the beans. Season with bay leaves, coriander, salt and pepper. Simmer uncovered 30 minutes more. Stir in chopped cilantro and parsley just before serving.
