Green Tea and Mango Sandwiches

Despite the fact that I am a huge matcha enthusiast, I have never actually baked with it before. I guess it always seemed a little intimidating. Let me just demystify matcha and tell you that it’s extremely easy to use and is a great way to jazz up baked goods. The green tea biscuits combined with this sweet and spicy mango and ginger filling is the perfect pair. So throw a tea party and impress your friends with these decadent little sandwiches!

Green Tea and Mango Sandwiches

This Recipe is :

Vegan

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup soymilk
  • 1 tbsp matcha powder
  • 1 1/2 cup mango, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sugar (plus a little extra)
  • 1/4 tsp ginger

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder and matcha in a bowl.
  3. Gradually add the oil to dry ingredients. I found it easiest to mix with my hands.
  4. Next, add the milk so that the dough forms into a ball. Knead the ball of dough a few times and then roll it out.
  5. Using the rim of a cup, cut out circles in the dough. I was able to get about 8 biscuits from one batch.
  6. Pour some sugar onto a plate and dredge both sides of each biscuit in it. Then place them on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, prepare your filling by combining the mango, 1/2 cup sugar, and ginger in a skillet.
  8. Bring to a boil on high heat, stirring occasionally. After a couple minutes, and once the mixture begins to thicken, lower heat and continue to cook for a few minutes. Then set aside.
  9. Once your biscuits have cooled down, you can assemble your sandwiches. Because this recipe only makes about 4 sandwiches, it keeps you from overindulging.
  10. Enjoy with a nice cold glass of soymilk!

We need to start compiling a "Must Do" list for all the things we are going to cook/bake when we are together again!
