Mango Rice Bowl With Veggies 2011-05-06 09:47:57


Mango sauce:
* 3/4 cup organic apple juice
* 1 mango, pit removed
* 1/4 cup lemon juice
* 1/4 cup coconut water vinegar or apple cider vinegar
* 1/4 cup sunflower oil
* 1/4 cup sugar free ketchup
* 1/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice
* 2 tbsp braggs liquid aminos or soy sauce
* 1-2 jalapenos
* 1/4 tsp Himalayan rock salt
* 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
* 3 tbsp filtered water
* 1.5 tbsp arrowroot powder or 1 tbsp corn starch

Veggies + protein

* 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken, sliced into 1/2-inch thick strips or 2 blocks of GMO free firm tofu, pressed and cut into slices
* 4 medium onions, diced
* 3 cups snow peas
* 2 red peppers, diced small
* 1 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil

High-protein rice mix

* 4.5 cups water
* 1.5 cups brown basmati rice
* 1/2 cup red/white quinoa
* 1 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil


Thick, sweet, and spicy mango sauce, surrounded with baked tofu, snow peas, and coconut rice.

To make the sauce: add all ingredients but cilantro, water, and arrowroot in a blender and process until smooth. Transfer to a medium sized saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, combine water and arrowroot in a small bowl. Once simmering is complete, add arrowroot mixture and whisk. Cook for one minute. Add chopped cilantro and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Remove from heat and set aside.

To make protein: preheat oven to 375F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper for chicken (or oil if using tofu). If you’re cooking a bit of both, you can separate the sheet with a foil wall. Coat the tofu pieces in the mango sauce and bake chicken/tofu for 30-40 minutes until tofu is browning at the corners and/or chicken is cooked through with no pink.

To make veggies: Add coconut oil and onions to a large frying pan [I used cast iron]. Allow to cook for three minutes before adding remaining ingredients + 1/3 cup mango sauce. Cook for one to two minutes.

For the rice mix: Add all ingredients to a rice cooker or large saucepan and cook until soft [about 30 minutes]

Throw it all together, pour some mango sauce on top, and you have yourself a delicious dinner!

Makes six rice bowls and three cups of sauce.
