Brazilian dishes vary by region, but maintain European and African influences. Some of the first ingredients used by native people include, cassava, guaraná, açaí, cumaru and tacacá. Since then, ongoing immigrants brought their own dishes and integrated local ingredients. For example, when potatoes were not available they discovered how to use the native sweet manioc as a replacement. Some of the more common dishes are feijoada, considered the country\'s national dish and regional foods such as vatapá, moqueca, polenta and acarajé. There is also caruru, which consists of okra, onion, dried shrimp, and toasted nuts (peanuts and/or cashews), cooked with palm oil until a spread-like consistency is reached; moqueca capixaba, consisting of slow-cooked fish, tomato, onion and garlic, topped with cilantro; and linguiça, a mildly spicy sausage.
