Easy Roasted Vegetable Tostadas Recipe, loaded with dazzling flavor and color! A bright zesty tostada recipe piled high with roasted peppers, zucchini, fresh corn salsa, and spicy serrano crema!
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.
Then load the roasted vegetables and the fresh corn salsa on each tostada shell.
Just look at all that colorful goodness!
Drizzle a little serrano crema over the top and sprinkle with cool salty queso fresco.
This is what tostadas are all about. A crunchy platform piled with beans, layers of veggies, a touch of spice, and glorious cheese.
Our Roasted Vegetables Tostadas Recipe makes a simple and healthy lunch or dinner option. Plus, it’s a bold and colorful party snack everyone will love.
Let’s just hope you have a few left by the time the party starts… these babies disappear fast!
