Bopis with Pineapple

Bopis with Pineapple

Bopis with Pineapple. Most Pinoy knows what is bopis but majority would probably stay away with the dish. The traditional bopis is cooked with annatto or achuete, a natural red coloring ingredient used in Pinoy cooking. The reason for adding a bright red color to the dish is to make it more appealing. Check out the recipes from the archives of a regular bopis and a vegetarian version.

Pininyahan Bopis

For my innovative Bopis with Pineapple I did not use or minimise the use of any of the bright colored ingredients. On this version of bopis I demonstrated that a bopis without all the bright coloring ingredients could still look delicious. Annatto and carrots are omitted on this bopis recipe, I have to have the red bell pepper because it is not used solely for its color, but for their sweet peppery taste.

The major twist for this bopis version is the addition of pineapple to the recipe, I know someone out there may have already added pineapple to their bopis. Here is the recipe on my Bopis with Pineapple.
