Could it be the next avocado toast?
When the avocados on display at the store aren’t ripe, but the champagne mangos are awaiting at their prime, the answer is a clear yes.
Mango toast becomes the snack or breakfast of champions.
Easy-to-make yet feeling oh-so luxurious, mango toast is the kind of eat you can treat yourself whenever the moment calls for it.
Feel like having an indulgent Sunday brunch? Mango toast is there for you. And won’t make you feeling like crawling back into bed afterwards.
Need a mid-afternoon snack during a hard day at work? Mango toast is there for you, too, without calling for too much of your attention.
In moments where you simply need to refresh, mango toast allows you to relax and enjoy with a prep time of 5 minutes or less.
It’s not a bad dessert option, either.
Here, sweet mango compliments an earthy, creamy drizzle of tahini, all of which gets topped with aromatic, toasted walnuts. Choose a rich, whole grain bread. You want a slice with some oomph versus one filled with an excess of air bubbles. Go for something with seeds, a loaf that feels nourishing and hearty. If a whole grain sourdough option is there, reach for that. The tanginess in contrast with the mango and honey is divine.
- 1 ripe champagne mango, cut from the pit and sliced into strips
- 3 Tbsp. walnuts
- 2 Tbsp. Tahini
- Cinnamon, to sprinkle
- Salt, pinch
- Honey, to taste
- 2 slices of your favorite grain/seeded bread
- Place walnuts in a dry skillet over medium heat. Roast until walnuts become fragrant and begin to brown, stirring regularly.
- Toast bread. Spread each slice with tahini. Place mango on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon and a small pinch of salt. Drizzle honey on top, according to how sweet you like things.
Opt for a rich, grainy-bread; something with some oomph. A seedy, whole grain sourdough can work nicely, with that tang complimenting the sweet mango nicely.
