If you’re not coming to Portugal for a sumptious food tour, then follow our recipe for a taste of Portuguese cuisine at home!
One of the many incredible attractions of Portugal is its lush and virile landscape. Northern Portugal is especially viridescent with tiny shoots and leaves bursting forth from every nook and cranny exposed to the sun. Vines creep over abandoned stone houses, wild flowers blanket forgotten fields and tiny ferns peek out from tiny crevices marked in the road. It’s beautiful, awe-inspiring and powerful display of nature’s power.
Equally amazing is the Portuguese knack of turning every consumable plant into a mouthwatering soup, and this Sopa de Feijao recipe is no exception. It’s nutritious and doubles as a fast and easy way of getting essential vitamins into your little ones.
This recipe can be paired with anything from a medium-bodied Douro red to a full-bodied red from the Dão. But if you’re in the mood to experiment, and the weather calls for something warm and soulful, a maltier IPA or a brown ale might suit perfectly. If you can get your hands on a Portuguese craft beer, all the better! Enjoy!
