Who is over this cold weather? I am 100% done with winter and praying for warmer weather to return. Growing up in Southern California I never really got to experience seasons. It was always sunny 99.5% of the time. It’s only when I moved to Texas that I really got to experience all four seasons. I used to think winter was my favorite season, but now that I have experienced real winter I think I despise it. Living in southern California for so long has spoilt me. Dreaming of warm sunny days had me craving some crunchy tostadas. So I created a super simple healthy vegeterian tostadas. These Healthy white bean tostadas are light, refreshing, and make me think of summer time.
Tostadas are a classic Mexican dish consisting of a crispy tortilla piled with toppings such as beans, cheese, lettuce and sour cream. Traditionally the tortillas are deep-fried to give it that super crunchy texture. To make the tostadas healthier I bake the tortillas in the oven using minimal oil. The topping for my healthy white bean tostadas are just white northern beans tossed with onion, cilantro, chilies, and lots of citrus.
These Healthy white bean tostadas (Oven Baked) come together in 20 minutes. It’s a super simple dish, but simple recipes are often times the best ones. The texture of these oven baked tostadas are super crunchy and the white bean topping is light and healthy.
If you are trying to avoid carbs, you could skip the tortillas and eat the white bean mixture as a salad. I recently hosted a dinner party where I served chicken enchiladas with a side of these white beans. I love carbohydrates and the combination of crunchy tortilla with a citrus white bean salad is match made in heaven.
I think you should definitely give this recipe a try, it will cure away your winter blues.
