I love me some ravioli and I love me some tomato soup, but what I love even more is this Easy Tomato Ravioli Soup. If you’re in the market for a quick, easy tomato soup wrapped with Italian flavor I think you’ll love this little number.
We’re sitting here in the Twin Cities just waiting to get slammed by a blizzard, and we’re not alone. There’s a whole swath across the upper Midwest. I keep checking the weather but it’s so bright and sunny it’s easy to be in denial. Maybe they’re exaggerating. Maybe we’ll get missed! One thing I do know? We’re having these Oven Roasted Cherry Tomatoes & they’re like a breath of sunshine no matter what the weather and what the time of year.
This is the third and final recipe to go with the Brazilian Feijoada I made the other day. In addition to that marvelous bean stew that was just loaded with all kinds of meats, beef and pork, some smoked, I served a traditional side, fresh & bright Brazilian Style Collard Greens. What really accented those dishes was this Brazilian Vinegar Tomato Salad.
The other day I shared my Instant Pot Brazilian Feijoada. It’s marvelous and easy and really set to be a family favorite. But yanno what else is marvelous and easy? The Brazilian Style Collard Greens I made to go along with that dish. These fresh and tender greens are minutes to make and while I love a traditional style Southern Collard Greens, these are a whole different animal.
I’ve had Feijoada on my mind for a long time. I made Feijoada years ago but it was one of those “Hey, it’s not you, it’s me” kind of things. It was ok, but not great. It wasn’t until I tasted a lot more Brazilian food that I “got” not just the flavor but the spirit of the dish and what a difference that has made. But guess what? This time I did it in my Instant Pot. And it was easy! So here, for your dining pleasure is Instant Pot Brazilian Feijoada!
