Brazilian black beans are a delicious and indulgent hearty dish, making them a perfect family treat. This meal is packed with flavours from fried garlic and onions, other vegetables and herbs. Black beans are packed with protein so it is a wonderful way to enjoy a meatless meal at any day of the week.Growing up my parents always made black beans packed with meat, bacon and sausages which is so amazing. I've created this meatless version that has all the flavour but a lot less fat.

Hi I'm Helen,
I'm fascinated with cooking and baking since I was little. My first cooking memories are learning ingredients and flavours with my grandmother, in the South of Brazil. I was very young when I baked my first cake, I loved it so much that I would swap any other activity planned to stay at home baking. All my neighbours were always expecting that delicious treat on the weekends. When it comes to cooking, I follow a simple philosophy of believing all products should have great flavour, great texture and also be beautiful to look at. I love using natural wholefood ingredients and creating delicious recipes that satisfy all our senses and bring people joy.
