Fresh vegan mango and avocado salad

I just adore the fresh flavours of this delicious fresh vegan mango and avocado salad; the fresh lime, chilli and ginger really bring this dish to life.  I find it a great pick me up and often eat it for lunch or dinner (sometimes both in one day!).  I serve mine with coconut brown rice or basmati wild rice for a more filling meal (I have a big appetite!).

This recipe serves 4 people

Ingredients

  • Rice
    • 250ml coconut milk
    • 360ml boiling water
    • 180g brown rice (or wild rice which looks pretty and is extra special)
    • 1 inch peeled and finely chopped ginger
    • juice 1 lemon
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Salad

    • 1 and 1/2 mango, peeled and diced
    • 2 avocados, peeled and diced
    • 1 sweet red, pepper chopped
    • 1 red or green chilli, deseeded and chopped finely (add more chilli if you like a hot chilli kick!)
    • juice of 1 lime
    • 1 inch peeled and chopped ginger (I keep mine in larger strips for a more zingy ginger hit)
    • large handful of coriander, roughly chopped

Directions

  1. Pour the coconut milk and water in a saucepan and add all the rice ingredients and bring to boil.  Once boiling, reduce the heat and let simmer for 30-40 minutes or until the rice is cooked.  Stir often to ensure the rice doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  2. Whilst the rice is cooking away nicely, you can make the salad; add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix well together adding salt and pepper to taste.  Careful not to over mix as you don’t want a mushy salad.
  3. Once the rice is cooked, place the rice on to the plate and add the fresh mango and avocado salad on top (or to the side as you wish).

I really hope you enjoy eating this as much as I do!
