Cucumber and creamed mango canapé

Updated: Mar 22

Sometimes, I crave the different mangoes, curry powder, and green apples served as a canape; I was curious to experiment with this dish. In fact, it was surprisingly quite delicious.

The combination is unique, to say the least. Sweet mangoes creamed in cream cheese with hints of curry is a delicious spread that I can eat on its own. Topped with tart, green apples and cucumbers bring the canapé together. This appetizer is light and refreshing and perfect to serve during mango season.

This is my favourite canapé book, it is a small beautiful cookbook filled with wonderful recipes from a chef who understands the art of composing these perfect bites. The recipes are quite simple but always pop with flavour, and the photographs are stunning (I am trying to get there myself). If there is one canapé book on your shelf, this should be it.

1 mango, peeled and seed removed

4 tablespoons cream cheese

1 teaspoon Madras curry powder

Salt, to taste

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 granny Smith or other green tart apples, thinly sliced

2 cucumbers, peeled and cut into thin circles

2 spring onions, cut into thin circles


Baguette or other wholegrain bread, sliced and toasted if desired

Mash the mango into small chunks and mix in with the cream cheese, curry powder, salt and pepper. taste for spice and salt. The mix should be sweet but have notes from the curry powder to balance the sweetness.

Load a thin layer onto a toast and top with a few scallions, apple slices, cucumber slices and a garnish of mint.

Serve immediately.
