Mango Quinoa

My intention is to make one serving of Mango Quinoa for today's mid day meal. 

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup Quinoa
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 cup mango juice
  • 6 slices of canned mango
Directions:
  1. Boil the quinoa in chicken stock adding salt.
  2. Zest and juice the lemon and add it to the mango juice.
  3. Adjust mango lemon mixture to desired sweet sour taste.
  4. Beat the egg yolk and whisk in the mango lemon juice.
  5. Reduce in pan until desired consistency ... thickened but not pasty.
  6. Arrange mango slices around quinoa and pour sauce in middle and drizzel around edges.
This is all i'm going to eat today ... except of course my morning prunes.

It ended up pretty much as intended.  I only had 3/4 cup of Quinoa;  and the 1/2 tespoon of salt made it way too salty.  The sauce took forever to thicken, but eventually did ... perhaps a bit on the sour side ... and then i only used about 1/2 or the lemon. 

I'm looking forward to trying this with fresh mangos and perhaps making my own mango juice too.

Zoom to album.

It's interesting to note that Mango Quinoa already has a substantial context.

I still wonder if you need a color consultant. 

Well there is no getting around it, tamarind is brown.  So is date paste.  The more tamarind, the darker it is.   I suspect that lemon+vinegar+sugar plus the mango juice would give a similar taste, and would end up looking primarily yellow. 
I only mentioned it because I watched the finale of the Next Iron Chef last week on the food channel & one of the contestants, the one that lost, produced a dish of soup whose color was primarily brown & the judges commented that it was really tasty, but the color put them off.


For the record, here is what the Mango Quinoa looks like made with tamarind.
