Instant Pot Feijoada (Brazilian Beans & Rice)

A few weeks ago I got my first Instant Pot, and I love it SO much, I am feeling pretty silly for taking so long to catch on! One thing I have been excited to make in it, is Brazilian beans and rice.

In Brazil they season everything with a spice blend called “Tempero Baiano” which is impossible to find here, but very easy to create using common spices found in your kitchen cupboard.

Brazilian Cheese Rolls

Recently I have been on a major beans and rice kick, {which i’m about to create a separate post for}, and these are the perfect thing to serve alongside them! My family get seriously excited when I pull a batch of these out of the oven, all soft and warm and oozing with melted cheese when you pull them apart.

I hope you guys love and make them as much as we do. I’m not much of a dinner-roll kinda girl, because they require so much work and pre-thought, but all that is required of these is blending up a few ingredients, and baking them in the oven. Leaving you all that time to work on some delicious rice and beans! Continue reading
