Sweet and savory mango basil sauce with garlic and tangy lime. Like an exotic goddess chimichurri you can use to toss with your favorite noodles, salad, drizzle over these jackfruit tacos, peanut tofu, veggie burgers or as a dip for your favorite things.

 Mango Basil Sauce

Easy. Tasty. Quick. Saucy. Vegan. 

All you need to whip up this awesome sauce is a small food processor or blender to puree your ingredients until smooth, nothing fancy really.

There are endless delicious ways to enjoy this mango basil sauce all year long! Soba noodles topped with oven roasted or burst tomatoes and peanut tofu have my heart alongside this fresh heirloom tomato sauce. After all, the best thing to do with the less than perfect wintery tomatoes is to roast them until perfectly caramelized at the edges. Spoon them over a bowl of noodles dressed in this silky sauce and live happily ever after!

How to Choose a Ripe Mango:

Holding the fruit in the palm of your hand gently apply some pressure. If it is slightly soft to the touch and with a fruity aroma then it should be perfect to eat. If life gives you less than perfect mangos you can ripen them in a paper bag at room temperature.

Fun Fact: Mangoes are know as the “king of fruit” and the tree is a symbol of love. Legend has it that Buddha himself found tranquility in a mango grove.

  1. This sauce is amazing, I’ll be making it all the time as it also keeps well in the fridge. I added a little more olive oil but you really don’t have to. Probably my favorite sauce now. Thank you for this kitchen inspiration.

  2. This was pretty good, but a little sweet on its own. It would benefit from extra garlic and some heat. I ended up using sriracha on top to make it work for me.
