mango fried quinoa with green beans and cashews

Once again, I am loving all of these vegan food blogs that I am coming across. I will never run out of ideas or inspiration again! This recipe is a slight twist on the Mango Fried Rice recipe by Post Punk Kitchen. Ladies and Gentlemen, please give a warm welcome to Mango Fried Quinoa with Green Beans and Cashews!

I only slightly adapted the recipe. I used quinoa instead of rice and Burn Baby Burn hot sauce (the Black Panther’s organic hot sauce!) instead of Sriracha hot sauce. I also added my mangoes to the skillet sooner than the recipe had called for, since the only mangoes that were available at the co-op were not so ripe. Nothing a little heat can’t fix!

This is a tasty recipe, it has a variety of flavors and textures to it. I think that raisins would have been a nice addition, and perhaps the next time I’ll make it I’ll give it a try!

Since I made a bunch, I brought a container of this tasty dish with me to work to surprise Shannon with! Hooray for sharing, because sharing is caring!

P.S. There is an epic Portland, Oregon trip in the makes (for my 25th Birthday in May!). In case you didn’t know, Portland is VEGAN HEAVEN. We reserved our four night stay at a hostel in the Pearl District, and we are scouting out which vegan restaurants we shall visit! If you have any recommendations, feel free to share them! So many restaurants… so little time!
