Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried pineapple pieces

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • ½ sweet onion, chopped

  • 1 stalk celery, chopped

  • 1 leek, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup peanut butter

  • 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • 3 cups water

  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream

  • ¼ cup minced green onion

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Directions

  1. Soak dried pineapple in a bowl of water until softened, at least 30 minutes; drain.

  2. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir sweet onion, celery, and leek in hot oil until tender, about 4 minutes.

  3. Sprinkle curry powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, and salt over the vegetables; stir to coat. Cook and stir until strongly fragrant, about 4 minutes more.

  4. Add peanut butter to the pot. Drain about half the juice from the tomatoes and discard; pour remaining tomatoes and juice into the pot. Cook until the tomatoes soften, about 5 minutes. Pour 3 cups water into the pot; add drained pineapple.

  5. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer soup for 1 hour. Stir cream, green onion, and garlic into the soup.

Cook's Note:

Puree about half the soup in a blender before adding the whipping cream, garlic, and scallion if you like a thicker texture.
