Mango Toast with Drizzled Honey and Tahini

Mango Toast with Drizzled Honey and Tahini

Mango toast.

Could it be the next avocado toast?

Mango Toast with Drizzled Honey and Tahini

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.

Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Date Fudge

Evenings are slowly getting chillier and quickly growing dark prior to the dinner hour. Already, I want to spend more of them curled up in my kitchen.

It’s also prime wedding season, and my photo ventures call for portable, energy-packed snacks like these. My tastebuds call for them all the time, so really it’s a win-win. Ya feel me?

Inspired by a recipe I saw over on Food & Wine, I knew I had to try this “fudge”. No sugar – just dates – this is the kind of fudge that’ll spike your energy, not bring it down. Yet, it has all that dense, sweet goodness you’d expect from a fudge. Again…win.

Peanut Butter Date Fudge

Throw some toasted sesame seeds on top for an extra punch of flavor, and toss a few coconut flakes on there too for some crunch. Both help brighten its appearance and make it an easy sell to guests. Although, one taste would do the trick as well.
