Sweet n' Hot Pineapple Sauce

Nothing went right for tonight's meal except this sauce (which is why it's the only thing I am posting). Not even the picture turned out. Curses! I experimented again with a new seitan, but it did not work out well. I also envisioned a dish with red pepper and cashews but ended up having neither in the fridge/pantry. The sauce, however, is exactly what I was going for--sweet with a citrus undertone and a spicy bite.

- 1 medium pineapple, peeled and cored, cut into chunks
- juice of 1 lime
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup chili garlic sauce (or more, depending how hot you want it)
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- salt to taste

1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Place in a saucepan and bring to bubbling. Lower heat to medium and cook for 5 mins, until thickened and smooth.
2. Use right away in a dish, or store in a bottle in the fridge for later.

It still looks good to me. I hate when I mess up on a dish in the kitchen. The sauce sounds delicious.

Have a great week.

Hi Vegan Dad

It's me again. I have started a blog of strictly my vegan cooking if you are interested in checking it out. Here is the link:

That is great about the cookbook and funny thing, I have started one for friends and family as a Christmas gift too. It was per request of my omnivore mom, who loves my cooking. My will be a zine with recipes and drawings. I look forward to your cookbook.

Talk to you soon.

I couldn't comment in the cookbook one... but would there also be a PDF version, where we could print it (and not have to pay for shipping, etc)?

I don't know. I will have to think through all of the possibilities. The problem with .pdf files is that they can be easily emailed around.
