Crock Pot Pineapple Curry

Who says fruits and vegetables have to be boring?  This dish, with it’s curry and red pepper flakes definitely has kick to it!  Of course, if you prefer your produce a little on the tamer side, leave out the red pepper and reduce the curry.

I’ve served this over rice, cauliflower, and potatoes, but here I’m serving over eggs to get some protein.

 Ingredients for Pineapple Curry

There's a bit of chopping to start, but then the crock pot takes over.  I bought whole vegetables, including the pineapple (hey, it was on sale!) but you can save time by purchasing pre-cut potatoes, onions, peppers, and even cored pineapple in the produce section of your grocery store..
