Vegetarian Curry Dish

This dish is for some folks who are in a hurry. I love vegetables and sometimes I don't have the time to set and prepare a "heavy" meal. You know the ones with all the trimmings. So here is a hearty quick pick me up.

1 lb. green beans
3 lg. yellow squash
3 lg. cucumbers (do not peel)
3 lg. red peppers
3 lg. green peppers
1/4 c. peanut or vegetable oil
1 med. onion, chopped (1/2 c.)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. curry powder (can use less)
1 can (16 oz.) pineapple chunks in natural liquid
1 tsp. salt

Trim green beans and cut into 2 inch pieces. Trim yellow squash and slice; trim cucumbers and slice. Halve, seed and cut red and green peppers into cubes. Pack vegetables in plastic bags and refrigerate until ready to stir fry.

Heat oil in a large kettle or wok, stir fry each vegetable for 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon. Saute onion and garlic in oil until soft; stir in curry powder and cook 2 minutes. Add pineapple chunks and liquid and salt and bring to boiling. Return vegetables to kettle and return to boiling. Lower temperature; cover pan. Cook 10 minutes, or until crispy tender.

Hi Iriegal!

I didn't realize that you had this sight. I absolutely love to cook. Your dishes sound so good, and some of them so close to what I already cook, especially your cabbage.

My sister cooks Jamaican foods all the time, (two Jamaican ex-husbands, lol) but I haven't tried that many recipes. I will now since I can print out the ones that you have here.

Hope you're having a great weekend!

I just made something similar the other day just in the Guyanese style.
