RT's Champagne Mango Cream Sauce on "Pasta"

Delicious, light, refreshing, satisfying, seasonal. This dish was my wining recipe a the Glastonbury Whole Foods Cook-Off, hosted by celebrity chef Andrea Beaman in her Unlock the Taste of  Summer Tour.


As always, my recipes are a foundation for you and I urge you to make substitutions or changes that you feel work for you. For instance, I use young Thai coconut water and meat. If you don't have access to these from an Asian market or Whole Foods, than try using bottled coconut milk, or blend dried coconut and water. Experiment.

I also used Champagne mangoes, because I love the taste of them, but you can certainly use regular mangoes. Seriously, I can't imagine any of these combinations in different forms tasting badly. If you do try this, let us know and let us know changes you made and how they worked for you. Good luck and enjoy!

PS - You can use a SPIRALIZER  or a veggie peeler to cut long spaghetti like noodles. I LOVE my spiralizer and use it frequently.

Wow, congratulations on your WIN! You are so modest and unassuming about it! I'd love to hear more about the contest, how it unfolded, what you won, etc. The recipe sounds just scrumptious.

Barbara, I guess I missed your last post (I've been on the road)--shall go check it out. I agree--that's a fantastic accomplishment for RAW in general: awesome that it wasn't a raw event and you won!
