Vibrant Fresh Pineapple Curry

Gluten Free Veggie Pies

I absolutely love pineapple in curries. It feels so tropical, and you all know how much I love the tropics. This one almost feels like I'm home in Venezuala.

This curry is creamy, fresh, and hearty. All the things I love. It's vegan, but it could also easily include chicken if that's your preference. Whichever way you have it, it's absolutely delicious.

Fresh pinapple is extremely high in Vitamin C and Manganese, and low in carbohyrates and calories, what's not to love?

And if you're one of those people who doesn't like pineapple in their curries (GASP!), perhaps you just haven't tried this one.

I recommend using fresh pineapple for this recipe. It is much lower in sugar, carbohydrates and calories because it comes without the fruit juice. But if you're in a rush, and the canned makes it possible to put this on the table, then go for it.
