Win a Case of Mangos!

by Meghann on March 21, 2012

We got a wee bit of rain this afternoon.

IMG_0791.JPG

And by a ‘wee bit’ I really mean we had a torrential down pour… for 2 hours. Our backyard flooded and Maddie refused to leave the couch.

IMG_0797.JPG

She does not like storms. Not one bit.

(In other news Maddie got a GLOWING report when I picked her up from doggie camp this morning. She ate all her food, played well with others, and loved getting attention from the counselors. That’s my girl! πŸ™‚ )

Dinner tonight pretty much fit our mood for the rainy evening – laziness. I had to run to Whole Foods to pick up some mangos (more on that below) and grabbed some chicken breasts pre-stuffed with an apple and cherry stuffing.

IMG_0780.JPG

I just popped them in the oven when I got home and dinner was ready.

IMG_0782.JPG

The chicken breast came out just a tad dry, but the stuffing was moist and delicious. Derek wasn’t a fan, but I’m not sure he digs the sweet and savory combos as much as I do. πŸ˜‰

IMG_0787.JPG

with the chicken I also prepared steam-in-a-bag brussels sprouts

IMG_0783.JPG

and parsnips fries(!!)

IMG_0789.JPG

And those mangos?

I have a case of them!

IMG_0770.JPG

This month, Whole Foods is celebrating the creamy, buttery, virtuously fiber-free side of mangos with the Mexican Ataulfo mango (also known as yellow mangos). They’re at peak season right now and are about as ripe and delicious as mangos get.

Whole Foods gave me an entire case of mangos with the challenge seeing how many recipes I can come up with – smoothies? salads? sandwiches? – but first I had to taste test one, just to make sure they live up to the hype. I had 1/2 a mango with a piece of toffee for dessert.

IMG_0796.JPG

The yellow mango was a tad tart, but did live up to it’s buttery nature. I can’t wait to use a few in a future salsa or caribbean stir fry recipe.

If you had an entire case of mangos – what would you do with them? Leave your answer below by Friday morning (3/23) for a chance to win your own case!* I will draw a random winner for my Friday morning post!

*Please note that the winner must live near a Whole Foods in order to collect his/her prize.

Good Luck!

I think I would make some mango sorbet with some of them. I would also make some mango salsa. I love buying it at the store, but I’ve always wanted to try to make it! My fiance is also a big tilapia fan, so maybe I’d try to incorporate the mango into a tilapia recipe. I can’t leave out eating them straight and juicing them! I’m a HUGE mango fan, and I live right across from a whole foods. I’m so excited about this giveaway!

63 Michelle March 22, 2012 at 12:45 am

mango salads, mango smoothies, mangos in yogurt, and just plain mangos!

64 Natasha @ Moody Girl in Style March 22, 2012 at 12:49 am

74 Emily S March 22, 2012 at 1:54 am

I lived in Egypt for three months during mango season – and it was glorious. I would purchase two liters of fresh-squeezed mango juice each morning to drink throughout the day. I would purchase mangos by the bagful each week at various markets so put into fruit salads, make into puddings and mousse, and just eat plain. What I miss the most, however, is the daily mango juice. If I won a case of mangos – there would be a ton of fresh mango juice.

75 Roisin March 22, 2012 at 1:57 am

I would eat them for dessert!

Oh man, I love mangoes. I would prolly end up eating most of them raw. But, mango salsa and mango lassi also sound delicious. My grandmother also makes a mango jam that is to die for. Mmm.

ohhhh that is so hard! I would make mango chutney with half of it, and the other half I would peel and freeze to add into my smoothies. I also freeze ‘cubes’ of mashed avocadoes and they go perfectly with a mango/coconut smoothie! You can’t even taste the avocado but it adds a nice creaminess and a nutritional punch :).

I would cut them up the size of fries, dip them in some dark chocolate, pop them in the fridge – delish dessert!

121 Jessica March 22, 2012 at 8:09 am

My boyfriend and I could blow through a pile of these just by peeling them and cutting them into “fries”, then eating them while watching TV, as we’ve done a zillion times before.

I also make a really awesome mango/avocado salsa/salad with red onion and balsamic, which is fresh and healthy to keep stocked in the fridge.

122 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats March 22, 2012 at 8:19 am

Mangoes are my favorite fruit!!!! I would make chopped cold salads (like quinoa mango and …. not sure yet), I would make smoothies (duh), maybe salsa, ooooo I could freeze them with some dark chocolate! Oh so many ideas! I wonder what mango oats would be like… hmmmm.

I’ve definitely eaten an entire case of mangos before. Sliced up for a snack, mango sticky rice, mango salsa, mango smoothies, I really could eat them endlessly.

138 Nicole March 22, 2012 at 9:08 am

I absolutely love these mangos from Mexico and wait all year for them to be available! I’d love to just cut them up and eat them as a snack or for breakfast.

139 Jenn Sutherland March 22, 2012 at 9:10 am

Mexican mangoes make the BEST sorbet, ever. I puree the mangoes with honey and a little sugar, and the juice of 1 lime, and 2 T tequila (it helps prevent ice crystals from forming – I swear!). Chill and churn, and you’ve got some very fine margarita mango sorbet.

Or, I make a mango upside-down cake in a cast iron skillet…caramelized, roasted mangoes are amazing!

140 Meghann March 22, 2012 at 9:14 am

That sounds sooo good! I need to get my hands on some tequila and try the sorbet! Also, I added a cast iron skillet to my registry. πŸ˜‰

141 Jenn Sutherland March 22, 2012 at 9:18 am

You had better have a cast iron skillet on that registry! It’s definitely my most used and loved pan…next to my 7qt faux-Le Crueset dutch oven, of course. πŸ˜‰

And if you don’t have an ice cream maker, you’re going to need one of those, too!

In Colombia, where my parents live, Mangos are super common. My parents have mango trees in their backyard. It is amazing. So after eating my fair share of them with lime and salt I would use the rest for smoothies, and for my favorite mango salad drssing. For the dressing you need
1 yellorw or red pepper
2 onions
4 cloves of garlic
4 MANGOS
heavy cream
paresley, CILANTRO, and vinegar
sugar
So FREAKING GOOD!!!!!!!

Hi Cristina,
Thanks for the great recipe. My new daughter-in-law is from Columbia and just loves our mangos from our orchard. I wil make this as a surprsie for her.. I hope she too thinks it is Freaking Good…. check out my site should you like to order some of the best mangos, coming soon..

Hands down mango salsa! I <3 Mango salsa, its good alone, with chips, mixed with cottage cheese, on top a burger or chicken. The list goes on and on. Also, I love it plain, grilled on the grill (durrr), and topped with frozen yogurt theres something special about the way a grilled mango melts the fro-yo…. mmmmm!

Okay, can I please just say how OBSESSED I am with these mangoes? My boyfriend’s mom, who is from Cuba, introduced me to them. She calls them Champagne Mangoes. They are my absolute favorite – I love the flavor, the texture, the smell. Everything. I actually just bought a couple from Whole Foods the other night!

My new favorite recipe is this tropical quinou salad that has red peppers, red onion, quinoa, mangoes, lime juice, agave nectar, and cilantro. It’s one of those recipes that makes a ton of leftovers, which only taste better as all the flavors marinate together in the fridge. YUM!

What do you mean by “virtuously fiber-free”? Mangos have plenty of fiber in them. Are you saying they’re a virtuous food? Or that they’re virtually fat-free? Not trying to snark but have no idea what you mean here.

233 Meghann March 22, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Here’s the response I just got from Whole Foods

“They’re fiber free. If you’ve had other varieties of mangos (like the francis from Haiti), there’s a kind of stringy fiber in the flesh that can be difficult to chew. With ataulfos, they don’t really have that, which makes them ideal to puree for drinks. :)”

I hope that helps! πŸ™‚

234 Meghann March 22, 2012 at 12:07 pm

Oh – and she has a good point. They’re really not stringy at all. I ate the bits right off the core and nothing got stuck in my teeth. πŸ™‚

235 rebecca March 22, 2012 at 11:56 am

i love this mango variety! they are easy to eat right from the skin. just cut on either side of the pit, then score each half, and scoop out with a spoon! also, great for mango salsa (diced mango, jalepeno, red onion, salt, pep, and cilantro). i’d freeze any left overs for mango margaritas, and smoothies of course :).

Those mangos are the BEST! I picked up a recipe from Whole Foods for mango bread so I’d try and make that……but they are best just eaten plain by themselves! πŸ™‚

254 adie (adiecakes) March 22, 2012 at 1:17 pm

I ? mangoes! I’d probably eat most of them sliced plain, but mixing them into Greek yogurt is delicious, too. Maybe make a salsa, and eat it with some coconut shrimp! That sounds so good.

I would use them in Mango salsa and then I would make mango sorbet. If they lasted that long, I love mangoes so I would probably just end up eating most of them as is!

257 Laura March 22, 2012 at 1:32 pm

i would make a fresh mango salsa to put on top of fish!

My first grader has been requesting mango in his lunch every day, so a good percentage would be used that way. I’d also freeze some for smoothies and make mango quinoa salad!

271 Katie March 22, 2012 at 1:59 pm

I would make sorbet! Also, potentially dumb question but I have never heard of this type of mango. Do they really not have any fiber?

272 Meghann March 22, 2012 at 2:11 pm

Here’s what the rep at Whole Foods told me: If you’ve had other varieties of mangos (like the francis from Haiti), there’s a kind of stringy fiber in the flesh that can be difficult to chew. With ataulfos, they don’t really have that, which makes them ideal to puree for drinks.

273 Kimberly March 22, 2012 at 1:59 pm

My boyfriend just moved back from Botswana in southern Africa and misses having an (mostly) endless supply of mangoes! I’d let him go to town on a case..and steal a couple for myself!

Wow, everybody else came up with great ideas… I’m not sure I could add to their creativity. Savory wise, I think I’d do a mango salsa with a great simple recipe I have with tortilla chips. Sweet wise, I think I’d do smoothies or maybe in a tortilla with jam and honey… Yum, I think?

I’m pretty sure the mangos aren’t fiber-free… I think what you mean is they aren’t fibrous. They definitely contain some amount of fiber, as most fruits do. Also, how can a fruit be virtuous? I wasn’t aware mangos followed some kind of moral code! Good for them, I guess. Although, I think you meant to say “virtually”.
