Brazilian ingredients are the cornerstones of Brazilian food: sweet corn (hominy and grits), the root vegetable cassava (also known as tapioca or taro - used to make side dish farofa), and beans feijoada. Brazilian cooking combines these ingredients with plenty of meat and hot coals, and Brazilian BBQ marinades include intensely spicy indigenous Brazilian ingredients such as the piri piri or malagueta chilli. Wheat isn't very common, and even the crisp and light Brazilian cheese bread is gluten free.
