It seems the only way I can get vegetables to grow in my yard is to plant them in large pots. I’m not really sure why… Maybe it’s soil quality? Or over abundance of squirrels?

No matter. I won’t allow minor details to stop me from having fresh produce at my fingertips this season. We’ve spent the last couple weeks planting our container garden, then covering it with chicken wire to ward off squirrels.

Just in case.

I’ve collected quite a few enormous pots and have planted all the things I use most in the summertime: several varieties of basil and mint, several varieties of peppers, zucchini, tomatoes galore, tomatillos, cucumbers, radishes and beets. Believe it or not, you can grow all of these in pots if they are large enough.

All this planting makes me want to eat produce in mass quantities, even before it’s ready to harvest.

So I set out to create a recipe that offers the bounty of the growing season, with Mexican appeal. I’m serving up a Roasted Vegetable Tostadas Recipe that is not to be missed!

Placing broccoli, zucchini, and bell peppers in a hot oven to roast, gives them a slight charred quality and brings out their vivid sweetness. Roasted vegetables make a perfect filler for tacos, and today we’re serving them on a lively tostadas recipe.

I made a light and healthy fresh corn salsa with sweet corn, tomatoes, scallions, and cilantro for a little cold-hot contrast. Then I pureed a quick serrano crema in the blender for a cool, yet spicy finish!

P.S. Old El Paso makes the best tortillas, taco shells, and tostadas shells that have won flavor throw-downs time and time again. You can find both fat free refried beans and vegetarian refried beans in your local grocery store to fit your diet.

    These are so beautiful! And veggies are kind of my heart and soul, especially in roasted form. I love the way broccoli gets slightly charred on the edges and takes on a completely different taste than when raw, steamed or sautéed. Need to put this in my back pocket for a quick, easy meal.

    Made these for dinner and they were awesome! I grilled the veggies instead of roasting and the Serrano cream was the perfect touch. Family asked to have them again…soon!
