Place the cubed sweet potato, pepper and red onion into a bowl then drizzle on the oil and a sprinkling of salt and pepper then stir well to cover. Take a piece of Bacofoil Non-Stick Foil then line a roasting tin with the dull non-stick side facing up. Scatter on the vegetables then cook in a pre heated oven set at 190oc / gas mark 5 for 30-35 minutes.
Gently cook the diced onion and garlic in a large saucepan with a dash of oil for 5 minutes, then add in the paprika, coriander, thyme and puree. Cook for a minute, then add in the beans and stock before bringing up to a simmer. Finally, add in the roasted vegetables from the Non-Stick Foil-lined tray and cook for 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, to make the salsa, finely chop the tomatoes, peppers, onion, chilli and coriander and place into a bowl. Season, then dress with lime juice and olive oil. Serve the feijoada with some wholegrain rice, a dollop of sour cream, the salsa and some fresh coriander
