Tex Mex food specialists Funnybones Foodservice is helping shops bring some Brazilian flair to their offering in time for the Rio Olympics with the launch of two ready-to-use cooking sauces.
‘Moranga’ is a creamy and mildly spiced sauce originating from São Paulo that is typically served with shrimp, but also works well with all kinds of fish, chicken, rice or potato.
‘Moqueca’, meanwhile, is a mild combination of coconut, tomato, coriander and lemon. Both sauces are suitable for vegetarians and are gluten free and are available in 2 x 2.5kg tubs.
As well as being used as a cooking sauce, they can make great dips and pour over sauces or, alternatively, can be paired with Funnybones’ new ‘Pao de Queijo’. These Brazilian cheese puffs are light and crisp with a fluffy dough centre, and are made with tapioca flour and parmesan style tangy cheese.
Gluten free, they are ideal as a single portion or sharing starter, side dish or grab and go option and can be oven baked from frozen in 3-4 minutes.
