Roasted Mango with Brown Sugar and Walnuts

More Ways to Search: Recipe Index


The past few Fridays all of the titles of my posts have read, “French Fridays with Dorie:…”.

Not today. Obviously.

Today’s French assignment was Roasted Rhubarb. I can do that! I’ve done that!

But, guess what? Rhubarb season is over. Well, at least according to the clerks at five different farmer’s markets.

I gave up looking after the 5th market. I even went to the grocery store hoping for canned or frozen rhubarb. No luck.

Oh well.

So, instead of rhubarb, I roasted mangoes! Not bad, right?

Over the years I have made a number of mango recipes; ice cream, chutney, pie… I even made a bread with mango. I didn’t like that.

My favorite way to eat a mango, though, is roasted. It’s sweet, it’s simple, and it’s a really nice complement to a scoop of vanilla ice cream. A la mode! mmmmmm! Or you can just eat it right from the baking dish. I always do that.

    dear kate
    for the taste of mango im sure its good from philippines where mangoes are abundant i know its very good but seems when you mixed it with walnuts. it and baked it the appreance dont seems so attractive …but the taste is absolutelz good

  2. Teresa

    That sounds fantastic. Rhubarb really does still have a season, doesn’t it? So many other things can be found year-round. Way to save the week’s challenge by using mangoes – your recipe looks lovely.

  3. Melissa@EyesBigger

    I’ve got 3 slightly overripe mangos in my fridge and I’m not sure what to do with them. Do you think I could get away with using them for this? Because it sounds so good.
    Rhubarb season is far too short.

    1. Kate@Diethood

      Hi Melissa!! 🙂

      I haven’t tried it with ripe mangoes, but I think that you might want to use 2 tablespoons of light brown sugar instead of 3 since the overripe mangoes are sweeter.

  4. Eva

    zomg, this looks amaaaazing! What an awesome idea, I bet it tastes like heaven. I am definitely going to be making this this summer, maybe put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top 🙂

  5. Betsy

    I love mangoes but have only eaten them raw. This looks like a nice alternative, and a clever variation with what’s avavilable.

  6. Peggy

    This is totally new to me! I don’t think I’ve ever had mango cooked or roasted… I don’t think I give the mango enough time for that – it usually get home, I peel it, and I eat it. And it’s gone! Maybe I’ll have to restrain myself one of these days and try it your way – it sounds incredibly delicious!

  7. Sabrina

    I LOVE mangoes and have never had them roasted! I HAVE to give this a try! I bet its heavenly with a scoop of ice cream! what a wonderful summer dessert!

  8. Lauren @ Healthy Food For Living

    Just came over via foodgawker… this looks fabulous! I just bought a bunch of mangos on sale at Whole Foods, and this is the perfect use for them :).

  9. Charlie

    I love, love, love mango and this looks sooo good!!!! Wish I had some ripe mangoes so I could make it right now ;). It’ll have to wait…

  10. kitchenarian

    I feel like I got a bonus recipe today! Even though you couldn’t find rhubarb, you kept to the same theme and introduced us all to a different way of preparing mango. Dorie would be so proud of you!

  11. The Harried Cook

    This is something totally new to me! I’ve grown up eating mangoes, and I have never seen a roasted mango dish. Sounds phenomenal! I just have to try this. Going to look for some almost ripe mangoes the next time I’m out buying fruits! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  12. sheila @ Elements

    Ooooooh…this looks wonderful, and I just have to try it! I just bookmarked the recipe. I might make it in the next week or so! 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! 🙂

  13. Maya@Foodiva's Kitchen

    Kate, I have a mango tree outside my kitchen and it’s just waiting all these years for this recipe of yours to come along! I’ve never roasted mangoes in all my life, so I think this idea is pretty brilliant. Well, as brilliant as you are :-).

  14. Anne @ Quick and Easy Cheap and Healthy

    Wow, for some reason, I’ve never thought of roasting mango before – what a fabulous idea!

  15. Elaine

    What a great idea! We love mangoes, but always eat them fresh. I have never made them any other way. Can’t wait to try this!

  16. Jean (Lemons and Anchovies)

    I’ve never prepared mangoes like this before but I bet it brought out their sweetness. You’re right, this would be so delicious with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yum!

    Have a great weekend!

  17. Meagan @ Scarletta Bakes

    Just lovely, Kate.

    I love mangos so this is right up my ally!

    Thanks so much for the recipe and gorgeous photography!

  18. Claudie

    DELICIOUS! How haven’t I thought of that earlier? that’s just such a great way to turn regular mangoes into a wonderful dessert – I really, really like it 🙂

  19. Jeanette

    Hmm, mangoes are one of my favorite fruits – I buy them by the case. I’ve never roasted them, but this looks really good, almost like a fruit crisp!

  20. Kulsum at JourneyKitchen

    I love all the ingredients in this dish and even though I eat mango every other day I don’t think I had a combo like that!

  21. Lil @ sweetsbysillianah

    great way to improvise, kate! i’m sure this was just as tasty as rhubarb… i’ve yet to bake with it. maybe next year! =P

  22. Kristy

    Darn it! I knew I should have grabbed that bunch of rhubarb I saw at the grocery store yesterday. (This was the store that was out of cherries. Sigh.) This mango dish looks awesome! I’m making this next week for my little Miss A. She’s going to LOVE it! (So will I. 😉 )

  23. Marmande in the Kitchen

    I’ve never had roasted mango before, but this makes me want to try. I just bought some this morning on sale actually, so this may end up being tonight’s dessert!

  24. Roxana GreenGirl

    if you think is bad, you can definitely send the dish my way, looks amazing. never thought of roasting mango, thanks for the idea Kate!

  25. Kelly

    What a great idea Kate! I bet the roasted mangoes are abosolutely delicious… the walnuts sound like the perfect complement. Yum!

  26. Adriana

    I also live in a rhubarb free zone, and bought a container of strawberries to roast on their own. At the end, I decided to opt out and try another FFwD recipe I missed. The mango idea is brilliant and totally up my alley/produce availability!

  27. Liz

    Oh, Kate, this looks fabulous!!! What a nice twist on Dorie’s idea…I never would have thought to roast mangoes, but I approve!!!

  28. Nikki @ The Tolerant Vegan

    This sounds like Heaven! I’m going to write this down and take on vacation with me because the ingredients are so simple and we’ll have a kitchen. thank you!

  29. Lindsey@Lindselicious

    I cant believe you checked at 5 markets! Thats Love kate. =) This sounds equally as delish. I dont like walnuts, (or pecans) – do you think almonds or hazelnuts would work just as well?

  30. visda

    Wow. what a wonderful idea. Mango instead of rhubarb. I love both of them but I can imagine how mango can replace the freshness of rhubarb and even with a bit more sweet balance. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe.

  31. Baking Serendipity

    I love mango (and so does my dad…I will have to share it with him!). I’ve never seen mango roasted before…maybe I just don’t get out enough 🙂 Either way, this is totally something to try. Thanks!
