Farofa – Toasted Manicoc Flour

Farofa is toasted manioc (yuca) flour that is served widely throughout Brazil. The dish is made by toasting the flour in a greased skillet until golden brown and crisp and then stirring in parsley, eggs and olives. Farofa is an essential component of Brazil’s national dish: Feijoada –Meat and Bean Stew, where it is either sprinkled on top or served alongside. Its crunchy texture is the prefect contrast to the soft beans and meat.
