Baked Beans and Pineapple So many compliments on this dish. People think I baked it for hours. Although fresh pineapple is not used you must try it. Delicious and sooo easy. Use you favorite canned baked beans(or bake your own) and add crushed pineapple.(I use Dole) Depending on the number of people: 1-2 cans beans 2-4 TB crushed pineapple OR to taste Must use crushed because of the juice. Enjoy!

Grilled pineapple with goat cheese Cut slices of fresh pineapple horizontally. Brush each round slice lightly with olive oil (or your preferred oil) and place on the grill. Turn each slice once it begins to brown. Continue grilling the other side until brown. Remove from the grill. Place crumbled goat cheese(feta or blue cheese also work well) on top of each slice. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and serve. Yum!

The following recipe uses more than 6 ingredients but thought you might be interested: These were made BEFORE I made dinner – that’s how quick and easy they are. 2/3 cup all purpose flour 1/2 cup quick cooking oats 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt 1 TBS Turbinado sugar 2/3 cup low fat milk 1 egg 1/4 cup canola oil 1 tsp vanilla 3/4 cup chopped fresh pineapple In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together then make a well in the center. Beat the egg with the milk and vanilla then add the oil. Add the egg mixture to the well in the dry ingredients. Mix well. Add pineapple. Heat your waffle maker and spray with non-stick. Add batter and cook about 6 – 7 minutes.

I use fresh pineapple in my green smoothies! To a blender, add 1-2 cups of fresh orange juice, add 1 cup of fresh pineapple, 1 medium cucumber, and about 2 cups of any mild greens like mache, romaine, or baby spinach. Blend well and enjoy!

Saute the onions and garlic until soft and starting to color, then add the bell peppers, cook 1 minute, and add the pineapple and pineapple juice, cooking 2 more minutes, until everything is hot and the peppers are softened.

Sweet treat. Soak Sushi rice for 30 min. in water, drain. I normally follow directions on the bag for liquid amounts. I also use a steamer with the rice pan inside. Combine rice, water, fresh pineapple (I use canned in off season syrup & all), when using fresh pineapple you may need a packet of sugar to sweeten to taste. Turn steamer setting to 30 min, after bell dings, let sit for 10 min. Warning...it will be sticky, but you will be able to eat with hands. Scoup out into a bowl & enjoy a sweet low calorie treat. Goes great with kabobs that have veggies & shrimp or a jerk pork & veggies.

Vegetarian Hawaiian Tortilla Pizzas - quick, easy, and super tasty! Ingredients: Flour Tortillas Olive Oil Pizza Sauce Vegetarian Canadian Bacon Grated Cheese (3 parts mozzarella, 1 part sharp cheddar) Fresh Pineapple Chunks Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Use a fork to poke air holes in one side of the tortillas. Rub a little olive oil on this side. Bake tortillas on the rack in the oven (oil side up) until they are crisp and have puffed up a little (5-10 minutes). Remove tortillas from oven. Place on a cookie sheet and spread with pizza sauce. Top with Canadian bacon and then cheese (putting the Canadian bacon under the cheese helps it stay moist). Finish with pineapple chunks on top. Increase oven temperature to 425. Bake pizzas until cheese is melted and bubbly (15-20 minutes).

I love using fresh pineapple in a fruit platter for parties. The one twist I do is the following: Slice the top off the pineapple so the greenery can be used as decoration. Use a pineapple slicer/corer so fresh pineapple can be used on the fruit platter. Create fruit dip using 8 oz. cream cheese, 1/2 cp marshmallow creme, and 2 cups whipped topping. Use the cored pineapple to hold the fruit dip and set the top of the pineapple next to it for decoration. With the dip inside the pineapple, it adds the pineapple flavor to the dip. Simple - quick - and tons of compliments!

ingredients: 1 pineapple cut up in to small pieces(like crushed pineapple) 1 tub of whipped topping 1 package cream cheese 2 packages Italian Angenetti cookies(Stella Dora) Mix all three ingredient well. Cut the cookiea in half. Place mixture in between cookie slices and refrigerate before serving. (They can be served immediately but i prefer when the mixture softens the flaky cookies by refrigerating)
