A very common side dish in Brazilian cuisine, farofa has a crispy, nutty flavor terrific along side rice and beans, grilled meat, chicken and fish. It is made with farinha de mandioca
  • 2 cups of toasted manioc flour
  • 100g (about 5 slices) of bacon cut finely into dice
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  1. Brown the finely chopped bacon in the oil.
  2. Remove from the heat and stir in the manioc flour.
  3. Mix until manioc flour absorbs all the bacon and oil.
  4. Serve warm or at room temperature.
If you cannot find toasted manioc flour, you can use the non-toasted. Just cook it over the fire for a minute or two so it can take on a light golden color before serving.
