I had been exploring the flavors of Brazilian cuisine for months and was on the hunt for the perfect Brazilian breakfast. After a bit of research, I happened across a recipe for Brazilian Breakfast Bliss. It was love at first sight!
I gathered the ingredients and got to work. A tantalizing aroma of garlic, cumin, and oregano filled my kitchen as I cooked the rice and black beans with olive oil and spices. To get started, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add 2 cups of white rice and stir to coat with the oil. Next, add 1 can of black beans, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon paprika, 1/4 teaspoon oregano, and 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley or cilantro leaves. Stir to combine and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
I then added bacon and stirred everything together before dividing the mixture into two bowls. To finish, I topped each bowl with a fried egg and added some slices of avocado for garnish. The end result was stunning!
Taking my first bite, I was transported to the streets of Brazil. The combination of flavors was simply incredible! My search for the perfect Brazilian breakfast had finally come to an end – all thanks to this delicious recipe!
This Brazilian-inspired breakfast bowl is a nutritious and flavorful way to start your day. Featuring two cups of white rice cooked in olive oil with black beans, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, oregano, parsley or cilantro, and bacon crumbles for added crunch, this hearty dish is sure to keep you full until lunch. To top it off, add a fried or scrambled egg and avocado slices for a boost of healthy fats. This recipe is easy to make and absolutely delicious! If I could make one change, it would be to add more spices to give the dish a bit more flavor. I now make it every week and I’m confident it’s going to become a family favorite.
