Carioca (Pinto) Beans 1kg


Beans or feijão are a large part of the Brazilian diet, and pinto beans or carioca are one of the firm favourites. The most popular lunch in Brazil includes a serving of white rice along with cooked beans - so much so that the phrase arroz com feijão the "rice and beans" is a colloquial term used to mean the "basics". 

To cook the pinto beans

Place 3 cups of pinto beans in 3 litres of cold water. Cook in a pressure cooker for 40 minutes, until the beans are soft. In a separate pan fry a sliced onion along with a clove of garlic, with salt and pepper. Add to the cooked beans and season to taste. Simmer for a further 10 minutes over a low heat with the pan uncovered to thicken the broth.

If you don't have a pressure cooker, roughly triple the cooking time.
