This dish is inspired by a recipe from The Complete Vegan Kitchen. Of course, I’m posting my slightly different take on the recipe. Mainly, I was out of coriander and had to work with ingredient amounts I had on hand rather than the exact ammounts called for in the original recipe. Also, the original recipe merely suggests the addition of black beans whereas I feel the addition of black beans is key to making this not only a delicious side dish but a complete protein that could stand alone as a one dish meal.
I just love the way elements of sweet, savory and spicy play out in this dish. The pineapple is not overpowering but just sweet enough. I cannot wait to try this with the coriander and cayenne added in. I think this would be a great side dish with grilled or roasted pork.
