Brazil is a place made up of a lot of different cultures, beliefs, and especially foods.The Tupí-Guaraní and other Indian groups that lived in Brazil planted manioc (a root vegetable like a potato) from which Brazilians learned to make tapioca and farofa , ground manioc, which is similar to fine breadcrumbs. It's toasted in oil and butter and sprinkled over rice, beans, meat, and fish. Farofa is still used as the Brazilians' basic "flour" to make cookies, biscuits, and bread.Rice, black beans and manioc are the main foods for many Brazilians. The main dish is feijoada a thick stew of black beans and pieces of pork and other pieces of meats, usually served with white rice or orange salad. Orange salad is just slices of orange peeled and sprinkled with salt pepper and sugar.these are just a few of the many types of dishes eaten in brazil.
