Mango Tango

Peak mango season is here! At my local fresh farmer’s market the other day, mangoes were on sale, so I grabbed one. Now, I’m not a big fan of fruit, but once in a while, I do like mangoes and since it was a blistering hot day, I had visions of cool, syrupy, tropical goodness.

Rummaging through the fridge, I tried to conjure up something to make with or from the mango. Bingo! I had all the ingredients for a nice little pocket sandwich – great for breakfast or brunch.

  • 1 whole-wheat pita bread
  • 1/2 sliced and peeled mango
  • Vegan cream cheese
  • paprika & salt

Heat the panini machine. Split the pita bread down the middle to make two pockets. Spread the vegan cream cheese on one side of the pocket on the inside. Add mango, and sprinkle with a little salt and paprika.

Add the pocket to the panini maker, and grill until the sandwich is heated through. Much tastier and healthier than a Pop-Tart! Enjoy!  (and be careful – the fruit gets really hot inside!)
