Needless to say, 2020 was the year of the unexpected. We’ve spent more time at home than ever before, developed new hobbies and habits to pass time, and took this year as a chance to better ourselves and find new, creative ways to stay in touch with those we love.
We can anticipate that this holiday season will be different from anything else we’ve ever experienced, but one we can turn for the better! We love finding new ways to keep the celebration going, and it definitely won't stop here.
One of the biggest things we’ve missed this year was travel (especially to Brazil). As we wait patiently for a time when it'll be safer to globetrot again, we can find ways to immerse ourselves in new cultures in our very own homes.
Of course, our favorite way to do this is through FOOD!
In Brazil, we LOVE our comfort food - from savory to sweet, we’ve got you covered.
This Thanksgiving is the perfect time to experiment with an easy yet hearty traditional Brazilian dish. One of favorites is Galinhada, a delicious chicken + rice comfort food. Not only is this a fun, shareable dish, but it’s a great opportunity to flex your new cooking skills with your family, roommates, or whoever you’re spending this Thanksgiving / Friendsgiving with. (Top Chef, watch out!)
Our friend Emma from @capturedbite shows you how easy it is to make Galinhada at home! The best part? You only need to use one pot. (Yay for fewer dishes!)
Check out the recipe below!
One-Pot Galinhada Mineira (aka: Brazilian Chicken Saffron Rice)
Serves: 4 – 6
There you have it! A delicious Galinhada to share at your Thanksgiving table this year for a special international treat.
We are so thankful for you, our Sol Babe community, and we hope that this season is filled with warmth, joy, and gratitude.
