Tired of the same old #MeatlessMonday recipes? I know I have been looking to change up my typical meatless meals for a while. So when I came across this Vegetable Bean Tostada recipe, I knew I had to try it out. With its simple ingredients and light prep, I had this flavorful and healthy tostada on the table in 20 minutes. If you’re like me and want to try a new meat-free dish, then this recipe is for you.
I’m telling you there is nothing not to love about this meatless meal. It’s packed with flavor, low in fat and calories. The other great thing about this vegetable tostada recipe is even if you have to get the ingredients, it’s a one stop shop kinda meal. The bulk of ingredients are in your produce section and the remaining ingredients can be found in the dairy section. By the time you read the recipe, stop at the grocery store and get home to cook you can feasibly have this meal done in an hour. Otherwise with all the ingredients on hand, you’re talking 20 minutes and done.
Are you ready to give this meat-free tostada a try? Of course you are….. so I’m gonna stop talking so you can start cookin’:
To get started on these tostadas the first thing you should do is heat up a large skillet with cooking spray over medium heat and cook the tortillas for about 30 seconds per side. Then set aside and keep warm. In the same pan you’ll need to add a touch of vegetable oil (like tsp. or so) and saute your mushrooms and slaw until tender. This will take about 5 minutes.
Set aside the vegetables and then warm up the refried beans for a few minutes on until completely warmed through. Then spread the beans mixture over the warm tortillas. Place in a deep dish to create a bowl effect. Top each tortilla with the vegetable mixture, chopped tomatoes, avocado, cheese, sour cream, scallions and cilantro. The recipe should yield 4 tostadas.
Quick right?! And those pictures…..mmm mmm good! I hope you like the recipe and will give it a try the next time you are looking to change up your meat-free menu. And remember it’s not just flavorful, it’s a really quick and healthy meal too!
Happy Cooking – Enjoy!
