Beans are the staple of the Brazilian diet. They are usually eaten with protein (meat or eggs), salad and farofa. This simple one-pot dish can be made in advance. It's full of goodness: pulses, vegetables, protein and dairy in the one recipe.
The original recipe contains a mild mid-soft cheese called prato that is diced just before serving. This cheese texture is similar to the Danish Danbo cheese; it is yellow in color, very mild in flavor and not too complex. I just added mozzarella cheese grated on top and grilled just before serving. A satisfying course perfect for cold days.
