This recipe is inspired by the dish Baioa do Dois (means baioa , a traditional dance of two) from the north eastern regions of Brazil. It’s risotto-like but without all the stirring and expensive ingredients! 

Brazil – Salvador



In a large heavy pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil and sauté the grated onions until starting to colour.

Add the chicken and garlic and cook until golden. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons oil and the rice and stir until the rice is well coated in the oil.

Add the beans, coriander and stock and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low, cover pan, and cook for 20-25 minutes, or until all the stock is absorbed and the rice is cooked through. Remove from heat, season to taste with salt.

Put in a serving bowl and dot the top with cream cheese, sprinkle with coriander and serve.
