Barbequed Pineapple (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free)


Don’t cool down that barbecue before dessert!  We found this one in our recipe archives.  Serve it as is, or with a generous scoop of soy or rice ice cream for a special treat.  For a kid friendly version, substitute 1/2 cup of juice for the sugar and rum in the marinade.


  • 1 fresh pineapple
  • 1/4 cup rum
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves


Peel the pineapple and, leaving it whole, cut out the center core. Slice into 8 rings, and place them in a shallow glass dish or resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Pour over the pineapple, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour, or overnight.
Preheat grill for high heat.
Lightly oil grill grate. Grill pineapple rings 15 minutes, turning once, or until outside is dry and char marked. Serve with remaining marinade.
