Farofa Peri Peri – Toasted Farofa Recipe

My Brazilian husband cannot live without farofa.  Farofa (manioc flour) is like a staple in Brazilian food and cuisine.  This is one of my favorite recipes for farofa… and I have tried many farofa recipes… I hope you enjoy!  Farofa can be used as a side dish or even as a stuffing for chicken or turkey.

Toasted Farofa Recipe

– 2 TB olive oil
– 1 onion, chopped
– 1 garlic clove, minced
– 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
– 1 carrot, grated
– 4 scallions, thinly slice just the white section
– 1/4 cup blanched & sliced almonds
– 1/4 cup black or green olives, chopped
– 1/3 cup sultana raisins (soak them in 1/2 cup dry white wine or cachaca)
– 1 cup manioc flour or flaky corn farofa or farinha de mandioca
– 2 TB parsley, chopped
