Recipe: Warmed Mango Halves with Cinnamon Yogurt Sauce


I don’t know functional drug addicts do it. I’ve been on the minimum dosage of DayQuil for less than 12 hours and I’ve already put my key in the wrong apartment door (sorry 10C), tried to spell sugar with an 'sh', spilled a pint of raspberries on the floor, and watched 30 minutes of TV before realizing it was on mute.

So if I had a sliver of a chance of successfully cooking anything today, it had to entail minimal thinking, measuring, and handling of sharp objects. Mandoline is definitely out.

I can’t recall which of the 6,000 magazines at the beach house sparked the inspiration for this (maybe Real Simple?) but I can tell you that it didn’t go exactly as planned. From what I remember of the glossy photo, sprinkling sugar over a mango slice and broiling it for a few minutes should result in a crispy, hardened sugar crust.


Regardless of how many 2-minute intervals I added to the timer, I came to terms with the fact that my mango would remain crust-less, despite the burned sugar lining the rest of the pan. Crust or no crust, this is a deliciously unique way to enjoy a mango. The warmed fruit becomes scoopably soft, and with the addition of a cinnamon and honey spiked yogurt sauce, this could easily pass for breakfast or dessert.

Ingredients (serves 2-4)
Warmed Mangos:
2 ripe mangos
4 tsp granulated sugar

Yogurt Sauce:
1 6 oz. container plain, fat free yogurt
2 tbsp milk (any fat-content you have on hand)
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla
¼ tsp cinnamon

Recipe
Cook Mangos: Preheat broiler.

Holding one mango (skin on) on its end with the narrowest side facing you, cut one slice off each side, just skimming the pit. Repeat with the other mango so you have 4 slices.

Arrange mango slices cut-side up on a foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle each slice with 1 teaspoon of sugar, and spread the sugar in an even layer.

Place baking sheet under the broiler and broil for about 15 minutes. Check frequently, and remove from the oven if the sugar on top of the mangos starts to brown.

Make Yogurt Sauce: Using a whisk or electric mixer, beat together the yogurt and milk until the mixture is frothy. Add the honey, vanilla, and cinnamon and whisk once more to combine.

Assemble: Top each mango slice with a drizzle of the yogurt sauce. Serve immediately, while mango is still warm.
