Easy gluten free vegan coconut mango rice recipe with ciliantro
, , , ,

It is getting hot here in South Florida and that means mango season! While I am not one of the lucky ones with a mango tree in my backyard, I do tend to somehow acquire a surplus of mangoes. Fresh mangoes are so delicious on their own, but sometimes it is fun to experiment and add them to different recipes, especially when you happen to have a large supply. My husband makes a great mango-avocado salsa that we like to put on top of mahi, and I have experimented with adding mangoes to baked goods (another mango recipe soon to come). Last year I had fun making some refreshing Coconut Mango Popsicles…I am however, super excited about this coconut mango rice recipe I am going to share with you.

 

 

Before I get to that though, I just want to take a minute to talk about the glorious mango. If you weren’t already aware, there are so many different varieties of mangoes. If you don’t like one kind, that does not mean you don’t like mangoes! When I first moved to Florida, I thought I didn’t like mangoes until I started trying all the different kinds. We even went to a mango festival and got to sample a whole bunch! I discovered that I like the ones that are firm and sweet, but not too sweet. There are some that I find too mushy, and some that I feel taste a little bit like pine trees. That’s a thing….right? Of course I can never remember the names of the different varieties though, I just have to try them and see!

So other than mangoes being super delicious…. why should you eat them? Mangoes have a ton of nutrients! One of which is beta-carotene, a precursor to Vitamin A, which may help protect against certain cancers and can lower your risk of developing asthma. Fiber and potassium are also present in mangoes, and are both great for heart health. Mangoes also have Vitamin C, Folate, Vitamin B-6, and antioxidants, among a host of other nutrients.

Now onto the recipe! It is seriously so easy. If you can cook a basic batch of rice, you can make this. Basically, I just cooked short grain brown rice in a coconut milk beverage to infuse some flavor, added some mango, fresh cilantro from my herb garden, and a little bit of salt. Super easy, flavorful, colorful, nutrient-full, and delicious!

 

 

Coconut Mango Rice
Serves 4-6

Ingredients
1 Cup Short Grain Brown Rice
2 Cups Coconut Milk Beverage (I used So Delicious)
1/2 Cup Diced Mango
2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro – Coarsely Chopped + Extra for garnish
1/8 Teaspoon Salt (optional)

Directions
1, Bring coconut milk beverage to a boil in a medium pot.
2. Add rice, turn down to a simmer, stir and cover with a tight fitting lid.
3. Simmer on low for 45 min.
4. Remove from heat and fluff rice with a fork.
5. Stir in mango, cilantro, and salt if desired.
6. Cover with lid and allow to steam in pot for another ten minutes to allow mango to warm.
7. Serve.

So I’ve been a little slow with the recipe creation recently, but I have a good excuse. For almost a month I didn’t really have full use of my kitchen. It is quite a long story but I will give you the semi-short version…

Basically, we were removing the laminate floors from our new house and discovered we had a pretty bad mold problem. So me, my husband and our 6 month old daughter had to stay with my husband’s parents for a week, while the mold was cut out of the walls and they cleaned the air. When we were finally able to come back, our downstairs was all concrete with missing wall and ceiling parts so we had to live upstairs while they were rebuilding the downstairs. Our kitchen cabinets were all covered with plastic during the rebuild so we really couldn’t get to anything…so plastic forks and paper plates were our dinnerware. I pretty much only had access to the refrigerator (except when they moved it to replace the floor) and the toaster. I honestly don’t even remember what we were eating during this time…it was all quite a blur of frustration.

And of course this all happened when my 6 month old daughter was just starting to eat solid foods so it really was not the most ideal time. I had to feed her in her high chair in my bedroom, and of course food would get thrown everywhere, including all over my bed. Luckily it is all over and we have nice beautiful floors downstairs that I will never redo as long as we live here.

This is what the downstairs of my house looked like for a few weeks

Anyways, with sincerest apologies for my lack of adding new recipes, I give you a coconut mango popsicle recipe and a promise that another new recipe is on the way next week 🙂

 

So onto the recipe…

 

Coconut Mango Popsicles, Easy, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Recipe, Vegan

 

Making your own popsicles out of real fruit is a great way to enjoy a summer treat and also get some great nutrients in for both yourself and your little ones. You can use fresh fruit that is in season, especially ones in abundance, like the mangoes down here in south florida during the summer. I definitely wanted to use up some fresh mangoes before they went bad and making popsicles out of them sounded like a great idea. Instead of making popsicles out of just fruit and sugar, I like to add a little flavor depth with things like spices, tea, or vanilla and a little bit of a dairy or non-dairy fat source. I find that adding a little fat really helps with the consistency of the popsicle so it is not too icy.
