Does this qualify as a weird flavor combination? I'm not entirely sure, but it made sense as I was making it. The results are satisfying - refreshing pineapple, crunchy peppers and earthy ground nuts coated in a sticky-sweet sauce. Serve it up with some brown rice or other grain to complete the meal.

Preparation

  1. Take out the pineapple flesh and cut into chunks. Retain any natural juices in a cup and set aside.
  2. Add the pineapple, chopped tomatoes, peppers and onions to a frying pan and sauté for five minutes, stirring constantly. Add the pineapple juice and stock cube, reduce the heat and simmer for a further five minutes.
  3. Finally, add the peanut and garnish with some freshly chopped herbs. I used basil here to give it an extra kick.
