Dried Mango - 100g
Organic Mango Cheeks 1 x 100g serve
Mangos are tropical stone fruits that are high in fibre and a great source of antioxidants and vitamins A and C. They also contain folate, B6, iron and a little calcium, zinc and vitamin E. Dried mango is absolutely delicious but… it is significantly higher in sugar and calories that eating it fresh, so watch your portion size!
Eating dried mango is great way to increase your overall nutrient intake and a better option than processed snacks.
Cooking with Mango Strips
Mango strips bring a bit of sweetness to oatmeal, granola or any type of cold or hot cereal. Try soaking steel cut or jumbo oats overnight with some dried mango cheeks. By morning, the mango will have rehydrated.
Dried mangoes also bring some delicious tartness and sweetness to salads – try a quinoa salad with chopped dried mangoes, avocados, and green onions, tossed with a lemon vinaigrette and seasoned with cumin, coriander and sweet paprika – lovely. You could also add some dried mangoes to rice, then add cucumbers, thinly sliced carrots, toasted almonds, chopped parsley and shredded red cabbage, all dressed with a sesame-ginger salad dressing.
