Pineapple and Potato Curry

This simple but exotic recipe comes from Jolinda Hackett, long-time vegan and columnist at About.com. According to Jolinda, "This potato, pineapple and coconut curry recipe tastes like it's been simmering for hours, but it's just the abundance of the spices and the rich coconut milk." Scrummy.

Ingredients

3 cloves garlic
1/3 cup water
1 tsp ginger
2 tbsp curry powder
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 onion, chopped
4 medium potatoes, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup pineapple, crushed or chunks
1 cup coconut milk
rice

Preparation
Combine garlic, water, ginger, curry powder, soy sauce and sesame oil in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Sauté onion and potatoes in olive oil for 4 to 6 minutes, or until onions are soft. Add garlic and spice mixture and allow to simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, covered, stirring occasionally. Add pineapple and coconut milk and simmer, uncovered for 5 more minutes. Serve over rice.
