Made this last night liked it but think it would be even better without the cinnamon and with curry powder and cumin, also added collards which were pretty delicious. I did Love how quick and easy it was to prepare, great when you don't have a lot of time to cook.


weird recipe, but not bad. (I'd never considered pineapple and beans.) I like to throw in a sweet potato (steamed in advance), some collard greens, and an extra tomato. once I added maybe 1/4 cup tomato paste and I don't recommend that. gross. I managed to save it with extra pineapple juice, but then it was too sweet. it's good over rice or quinoa or some grain to mellow out the pineapple's sweetness. I've eaten it plain, too.
