Thai Coconut Pineapple Curry

Just reading this Recipe makes my mouth water!  Jim Cole, who submitted this recipe, has discovered that you can put in a significant amount of Hemp Protein Powder without coloring the flavor of the curry.  This means you can enjoy the same meal without looking to the traditional chicken for protein!


  • Curry Paste (Red, Panang, Yellow, etc). Found at Asia food markets
  • 3 cups Coconut Milk canned, or prepared using Nutiva Coconut Manna Milk recipe.
  • 1 red bell pepper or your favorite color
  • 1 can mushrooms your favorite , or fresh if available. I use Abalones.
  • 1-2 Tbsp sugar to taste
  • 1 can pineapple cubed Or 1/2 of a fresh.
  • 2-3 cloves garlic Minced
  • 2-3 Tbsp Organic Hemp Seed Protein


  1. Lightly toast garlic in deep pan.
  2. And bell pepper and mushrooms (if fresh), sliced however you want, and cook to desired level of cooked-ness. Some like em’ crunchy, some like em’ soft. It’s up to you.
  3. Now add the coconut milk (or coconut manna milk). If it comes from a can, then you will probably have to wait for the solids to melt.
  4. Once the coconut is all liquid, sort-of cut in the curry paste. I like to scoop a spoon onto my wooden spatula, and rub it a little at a time into the milk. Start with a heaped tbsp, and add until you’ve reached a level of flavor/spiciness that you desire.
  5. Add mushrooms now, if canned. Add sugar to taste. I usually use 1-2 tbs. Now is also the time to add your hemp protein powder. I have used, in the past, up to three heaped tablespoons with minimal impact on taste. It is a great way to add protein to this dish, while avoiding meat or over-processed tofu.
  6. Serve over prepared rice, white or brown.
  7. OR: If you’d like, you can add a cup or two of coconut milk to make a great soup!
