What is a Tostada?

A tostada is an authentic Mexican dish that uses a toasted tortilla as the base. In Spanish, tostada means “toasted,” so it is a very fitting name.

Typically, tostadas are topped with some kind of ground meat and all the taco fixings including beans, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese.

How to Make Vegetarian Tostadas

These vegetarian tostadas come together in 5 simple steps, and under 30 minutes flat. You’ll be enjoying this delicious meal in no time:

STEP BY STEP

  1. Prep Tortillas: Spray both sides of your tortilla with nonstick cooking spray, and then broil your tortillas on each side until toasty brown and crispy. Make sure to watch closely so that your tostadas don’t burn.
  2. Sauté the Sweet Peppers: Sauté sliced Good & Gather mini sweet peppers, and season with salt and pepper. Only cook your peppers for around 2-3 minutes so that they stay nice and crunchy.
  3. Sauté Good & Gather Plant-Based Ground: Sauté plant-based ground 2-3 minutes, and then add salsa, salt, and chili powder. Continue cooking for 5 minutes or until browned.
  4. Assemble Tostadas: Spread around 1 tablespoon of guacamole on each tortilla. Then, add 1/4 cup of Plant-Based Ground and 1/4 cup peppers.
  5. Enjoy Immediately: Finish these delicious vegetarian tostadas with a fresh squeeze of lime, sliced avocado, and vegan shredded cheese.

Instructions

  1. First, preheat your oven to broil. Next, place tortillas on a baking sheet (you may have to do this in batches) and spray both sides of each tortilla with olive oil cooking spray.
  2. Then, season with sea salt. Place the pan under the broiler for 30 seconds to 1 minute, then flip and cook for an additional 30 seconds to 1 minute. Time varies depending on your oven, but the goal is to brown the tortilla to get them crunchy. Set tortillas aside.
  3. Next, saute the sweet peppers. Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil to a pan and heat over medium/high heat. Add sliced mini sweet peppers and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Saute for around 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Add another teaspoon of olive oil to the same pan and then add in Plant-Based Ground. Saute for 2-3 minutes and then add salsa, salt, and chili powder. Continue cooking for 5 minutes or until browned.
  5. Assemble tostadas by spreading around 1 tablespoon of guacamole on each tortilla. Then, add 1/4 cup of Plant-Based Ground, 1/4 cup peppers, and any other toppings your heart desires.
  6. Eat immediately with a fresh squeeze of lime, sliced avocado, and vegan shredded cheese.
