Crock Pot Pineapple Curry

Crock Pot

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

I will admit, I am not the biggest fan of curry.  I can't handle really spicy foods, so I'm very careful with ingredients like curry.  However, this is one recipe I really enjoy.  The heat of the curry is balances with the sweetness of the pineapple for a delirious meal.  This recipe is hearty enough to be a meal on its own, but tonight I'm making some eggs to go with it for a boast of protein.  

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.

Combine all ingredients except eggs and oil in slow cooker and cook on “low” setting for 4-6 hours.  That's it!  It's really that simple.  Now just sit back and let the slow cooker do the work for you, and enjoy the sweet aroma that fills your kitchen.

Scrambled Eggs

When you're almost ready to eat, it's time to cook the eggs!  Sure, you could get fancy and poach eggs for a hash like meal, but tonight I've kept it simple by just doing scrambled eggs.  If you have time, take your eggs out and place them on the counter and allow them to come to room temperature.  this isn't necessary if you don't have the time, but the eggs will cook much better if they are at room temperature when they hit the fan.

Heat oil in pan on stove top or heat non-stick pan on medium high heat.  In bowl, lightly beat eggs.  I usually swirl the oil once it's hot just to make sure my pan is evenly coated.  Add eggs to pan and scramble.  Remove from heat when no longer runny.
