Stuffed Pineapple

In Main Dishes, Pasta, Rice, and Grains, Recipes by Lori Hill1 Comment

When we were in Mexico for spring break in 2016, we stayed at the Maya Luna Hotel and Restaurant a small, eco-resort (just 4 bungalows on the beach!) that is off the grid. But trust me, we had all the modern amenities and the food was truly delightful. Maya Luna is famous for its Stuffed Pineapple which is normally prepared with shrimp and eggs, but they happily “veganified” it for me. They generously shared their recipe which I’ve converted from metric. 

The fresh pineapple, coupled with rice seasoned with fresh spices and crunchy cashews, is a fun and light dish that makes you feel so healthy when you eat it! It is vegan and gluten-free.

  1. Thank you so much for this recipe. We had Pina Maya Luna in June of 2017 and loved it!! For us non-vegetarians, do you have the original recipe which uses shrimp and eggs? We would like to recreate this dish as we ate it in Mahahual last month. Thank you so much.
