This delicious Corn and Lima Bean Pudding, casserole has vegetables baked in a nutmeg-scented egg custard is a Brazilian favorite. In a country where meat dishes are prevalent, this vegetarian dish was popular among Jewish immigrants in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. It allowed them to dine with Catholic friends and maintain their kosher diet without drawing attention to their religious beliefs. For a touch of spicy heat, add some finely chopped malagueta pepper, the most widely used hot chile in Brazil, or your favorite chile pepper to the skillet with the onion and bell pepper.
