Quick, easy, healthy, vegan, protein, healthy fats, and nutrient dense--what more could you want.
This is my vegan and healthy take on a tostada AKA this is all I had in the house and made it work.
I fried my tortilla in coconut oil because I didn't have actual tostada chips and I liked it better this way. It'd be good with cotija cheese or Mexican crema on top too!
Hope you try it and enjoy!
Side note: I add extra seasoning to my beans, usually some salt and garlic powder.
1 can Trader Joe's organic "salsa style" refried beans
1 1/2 cups cubed butternut squash (sweet potato works too!)
2 medium red potatoes, cubed (these cook faster and are silkier)
1/2 green bell pepper, roughly chopped
1/2 large zucchini, cubed
Handful of cilantro
1 small lime, 1/2 for cooking and 1/2 for topping
1/2 small avocado
1/4 red onion, fine chopped
Trader Joe's Salsa Verde, for topping
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to your heat preference)
1 tbs coconut oil for cooking vegetables
1/2 cup water
1 tbs coconut oil, enough to fry your tortilla in a pan
