Have you ever heard of the saying, “Smack your momma good”??
Well, these are, “Smack your gramma off her rocker!” good!!!!!
A well trained chef will tell you that a properly prepared dish will hit each taste bud….sweet, salty, savory, bitter, a little spice….this hits even the taste buds you don’t have!
YOU MUST MAKE THESE!
There is some preparation involved before you can make this recipe…..you must first make the mango wrappers….but if you are wise you will make a whole lot of them and store them! So first, blend as many mangos as you would like to make a fruit puree…do not add in water or anything else! I used 4 yellow mangos.
Now, we are going to essentially be making fruit leathers….if you need a tutorial please read my post here or if you want to learn how to make homemade suckers using this same puree check it out here.
Spread the mango puree onto a teflex sheet or waxed/parchment paper placed onto a cookie sheet. (These are shown on my dehydrator trays, I made a batch in the oven and dehydrator to test the recipe)
Spread it as thin as you can get it…and if you have enough make several batches to bake at the same time.
If you have a dehydrator than place the mango puree in and dehydrate overnight on 115 degrees.
If you do not have a dehydrator turn your oven on the lowest setting (mine goes to 170) and place in oven. I keep the door open to keep the oven cooler than 170…..we are drying these out not baking them!!! Depending on how thick you have spread the puree it may take anywhere from 1-4 hours to dehydrate in your oven.
When they wrappers are finished cut them into large rectangles….now you can make..
Smack Your Grandma Off Her Rocker Mango Wraps
Place one wrapper on a plate and fill with any sort of veggie you like!!
Here is what I used….
Avocado slices, spinach leaves, red pepper, and a dash of salt,and a dash of cayenne pepper…..I would have also liked to have put some sprouts or pea shoots on here but I did not have any
Once you have your fillings placed onto the wrappers, roll up your wrap and slightly wet the very edge of one of the sides so that it will stick and stay closed.
You can also drizzle some hot sauce or salsa over the top…..watch out gramma!!!
or eat them plain…..
but please don’t actually smack your gramma…..
What would you fill these mango wrappers with??
My bestie likes to eat them this way:
