I’m excited to share a recipe that I wasn’t even planning on sharing, LOL. It all started with an idea from Eating Well Magazine. However, per usual, I started skipping and shortening a bunch of steps in the recipe as I made it (who needs to dirty a food processor for this weeknight dish?!). Then, the finished product was so tasty and pretty that I decided to share a pic on social media. Some started asking for the recipe…so here it is! I love a one dish meal with a healthy dose of vegetables. Oh, and it’s perfect for your next Meatless Monday, too. :)
I put quotation marks around “tostada” because the traditional recipe uses deep-fried tortilla shells. While deep-fried is certainly a crunchy and tasty treat, it’s not considered real food. So I just used regular corn tortillas (freshly made and warm!), and we didn’t even notice anything was missing. You can bake them by themselves to crisp them up a little beforehand, but I honestly didn’t think that extra step is really necessary. Pretty darn tasty just as they are!
Funny enough, when my daughter asked me what was for dinner, and I said, “Roasted Vegetable Tostada,” her response was, “Oooh, I don’t think I like that.” I was surprised because our family loves all things Mexican! Come to find out, she thought I meant “frittata” not “tostada.” It doesn’t happen as often as when they were tots, but I still think it’s so funny and cute when they mix up words like that. :) (And bonus, she DID like the dinner and scarfed it down once she figured out it wasn’t an egg bake!)
