My Love Affair with Mangoes

When, I discover a new food, I like, I make it over and over again.  This year, I mangoes came into my life and it has appeared in a variety of recipes.  It seems to me, mangoes go with almost anything.  They balance out savory recipes, they fit into sweet ones.  The give new meaning to salads and poultry.  

Mangoes are stone fruit, grown on trees.  India is the biggest producer of this lovely fruit.  Ripe mangoes are typically eaten fresh and can be used in many recipes, in a variety of ways.

The first time I used Mango was in a drink, Mango Lassi, which is created by mixing ripe mangoes with yogurt and sugar.  It turned out to be quite a treat.

This time, I found a new site, Fresh  Here, you will find a brief history of the mango, health benefits of the mango and how to eat a mango, just for starters.  This is followed by recipes using the fruit.

  1. Yum! Love mangoes! This sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Perfect chicken dish! Mango is just a lovely ingredient :) One of my favorites.

  3. I had mangoes as pavlova topping and they were delicious! Bet this chicken with mangoes tasted as great as it looked!

  4. This looks good. I love Mangos. Would come over and share some of your recipes at my link party Cast Party Wednesday tomorrow?
    I hope to see you there!

  5. This looks awesome, the only change I'd make to the recipe is to use olive oil (canola is not good for us), and only fermented soy sauce (unfermented soy is another one that is not good if you eat very much of it). :)

    Mango gives great flavor to everything, doesn't it?

    Thanks for joining in on Real Food Wednesday!
