VEGETARIAN TOSTADAS WITH AVOCADO AND CHEESE ...a nice vegetarian recipe to try !

  • 4 flour tortillas (6 to 7 inches in diameter)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 c. finely shredded lettuce
  • 1/4 c. diced ripe tomato
  • 2 tsp. minced seeded fresh jalapeno or other green chile pepper
  • 1/4 c. canned vegetarian-style refried beans
  • 6 tbsp. mashed ripe avocado
  • 1/4 c. crumbled reduced-fat goat cheese or feta or shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack or Cheddar
  • 6 pitted jumbo olives, thinly sliced
  • 4 thin slices sweet onion, separated into rings

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Brush the tortillas lightly on both sides with 1 1/2 teaspoons of the oil. Place on a baking sheet and bake until crisp and golden, 6 to 8 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1 tablespoon oil with the vinegar, salt, black pepper and 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon water.
Whisk or beat with a fork until well blended.
In a medium bowl, toss the lettuce, tomato and jalapeno pepper. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and toss.
Spread 1 tablespoon of the refried beans over each tortilla. Spread 2 tablespoons of the mashed avocado over the beans on each tostada. Top with the salad and garnish with the cheese, olive slices and onion rings. The vegetarian recipe is ready to serve. Enjoy the tostadas ! Nice !
