Bean Mush With Manioc Flour

Makes: 6 servings

Preparation Time: 30 minutes

Level: Easy

INGREDIENTS

  • ½ CUP BACON, CHOPPED
  • 2 TABLESPOONS LARD OR CLARIFIED BUTTER
  • ½ ONION, CHOPPED
  • 3 GARLIC CLOVES, CHOPPED
  • 2½ CUPS COOKED BEANS WITH THE LIQUID
  • ¾ CUP FINE MANIOC FLOUR
  • ½ BUNCH SCALLION, FINELY SLICED
  • CRACKLINGS, AS SIDE DISH
  • SALT AND PEPPER TO TASTE

PREPARATION

Fry bacon in lard, until brown. Add onion and garlic, and stir-fry. Add the beans with the liquid and heat. With a tablespoon, mash the grains – you may use a blender if you want, but the goal is to keep it rough. Season with salt and pepper and add manioc flour little by little, mixing constantly. Cook for a while and sprinkle scallions. Serve with chunks of cracklings on top.

 

In detail: Similar to beans served in virado à paulista – in this recipe, however, grains are mashed.
