  • Small Mixing Bowl
  • Sauté pan
  • Chef knife
  • Whisk
  • Wooden Spoon


  • 15 oz Pineapple In natural juice, drained. I bought rings as easy to pull out and toss into blender.
  • ½ Onion Chopped
  • 4 Garlic cloves Minced
  • 2 tbsp Liquid aminos
  • ½ cup Roasted red peppers
  • 2 tbsp Cornstarch You can also use arrowroot
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 2 tsp Onion powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp Basil Dried
  • ¼ tsp Oregano Dried
  • ¼ tsp Crushed red pepper Optional
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 Pinch of cinnamon


  • In a skillet sauté half an onion and 4 cloves of minced garlic, until onion is translucent. If you're not using oil, I like to use a bit of veg stock or water to sauté with.
  • Puree the roasted red pepper and the pineapple in a blender, add all seasonings & spices. Pour the puree into the skillet with the onions and garlic.
  • Create a slurry by whisking together the cold pineapple juice (from the can) with the cornstarch. Once combined, whisk the slurry into the sauce.
  • Bring sauce to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer (stirring constantly) for about 2-3 minutes or until thickened.
