Sweet coconut quinoa with sticky mango


This dish makes a great gluten-free breakfast alternative to Bircher muesli if you serve it topped with chunks of fresh mango. Or opt for sticky glazed mango cheeks instead, as we have, and enjoy it for dessert.

You'll need

160 gm (1/3 cup) quinoa 4 fresh dates, pitted and finely chopped Scraped seeds of 2 vanilla beans or 2 tsp vanilla extract ½ tsp ground cinnamon 625 ml (2½ cups) canned organic coconut milk 1 mango, diced   Sticky mango 2 mango cheeks 60 gm coconut sugar 80 ml (1/3 cup) coconut milk Juice of 1 lime

Method

  • 01
  • Rinse quinoa under running water, then combine in a saucepan with dates, vanilla, cinnamon, 500ml coconut milk and 250ml water. Bring to the simmer, stirring occasionally, until quinoa is tender (15-20 minutes). Remove from heat then add remaining coconut milk and diced mango, and stir. Refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • For sticky mango, heat a frying pan over high heat. Press cut sides of mango cheeks into sugar, then place sugar-side down into frying pan and cook until caramelised (2-3 minutes). Remove mango from pan (set aside), then add coconut milk, lime juice and 50ml water to pan and stir to combine, then set aside to cool.
  • 03
  • Serve coconut quinoa topped with grilled mango cut into wedges and pan juices drizzled over.
