The other day me mum had an excellent craving -- she wanted pineapple and a coconut-based curry. She was going to put something together and bring it to me for lunch the next day, but she didnt get a chance to. Instead she brought me a can of pineapple, a can of coconut milk and a tin of red curry paste(mind you don't get one with shrimp and/or fish sauce!!!) I added a can of black beans, a bell pepper, and some soy sauce and came up with something truly excellent!!
Thai-influenced Coconut-pineapple Curry
1 can coconut milk (14.5 oz, or something like that)
1 15-oz can pineapple (more or less, to taste)
1 can black beans
1 4 oz tin or several tablespoons of your favorite thai red curry paste (mind you don't get shrimp and/or fish and/or other seafood nasties!!!!)
1 green bell pepper, cut into bite-size pieces
a couple tablespoons of soy sauce
I made this in the microwave; mum did something very similar on the stove, so either way works. I'll give the micro directions, but i bet you can figure it out for the stove ;-).
Pour the coconut milk in a large microwave-safe bowl and mix in the curry paste. Mix well, until it is homogeneous. Dump in the black beans, pineapple, green pepper, and soy sauce. Mix well.
Stick in the micro for 3 minutes. Stir it; it will probably need a little while longer. Put it back in for an appropriate amount of time (I think I did another minute. Then maybe 30 second increments until it was done to my satisfaction. (sorry, i did this yesterday and didn't write it down...)) Stir and serve over fresh, hot rice. Add extra soy sauce/sriracha as desired. Enjoi!!
