A Simple Minted Mango Crêpe

5 WWPP Posted by 6 years ago 3 Comments

Yesterday I came home from a 3-day excursion at Mom’s to some wonderfully ripe Mangoes. I just HAD to do something with them this morning.

I didn’t have much of anything else in the house, so I hit the herb garden and made an old favorite, Low Fat Whole Grain Crêpe.

A Simple Minted Mango CrêpeWhat a fun, simple breakfast! I would have loved to mix in a little yogurt, but I was all out. In a way, I’m glad. I was able to just try the pure flavor combination of mango and mint. Let me tell you, it’s a winner! I’m already dreaming up a minted mango salsa to serve over tilapia tomorrow night. If it works out I’ll post it!

Here’s what I did this morning.

Here’s my ripe mango. I cut it using the porcupine technique. Click here to see the Little Guy and I show you how to do it on camera.

Here’s the quick overview…

Halve the mango on one side of the seed and cut a checkerboard pattern in the flesh.

Pop up to reveal the “porcupine.”

Cut off the small cubes of mango.

Roll the mint leaves together and cut into thin strips.

Mix together the mango and mint leaves, and chill while you make (or warm) the crêpe.

Pile the mango and mint into the center of the crêpe…

Roll and eat!

Side Note: The new WWP stumps me again. The crêpe is 2 WWPP, you decide how you want to “count” it.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Hi Roni! This is so timely because I am currently posted in West Africa and we are *surrounded* by ripe, juicy mangoes that are simply falling off the trees. I can't wait to try this!

    Holy cow! You have saved me so much time with this mango cutting technique. Me and my toddler love mangoes, but they take me forever to cut. Not anymore! Thanks!

    If you have fresh basil in your herb garden, that is a HUGE hit with mango. I don't even like basil but with mango, I do. I was planning to make a mango salsa for chicken this weekend but just ran out of ooomph to make it happen. I have a mango and some serrano peppers. I also have some yellow anaheim peppers which are much more mild but I like zip! I was planning to cut up the mango, the pepper, some cilantro, and some purple onion. Just havne't done it yet. lol
