These amazing vegan tostadas are a family favorite. They are easy to make, full of flavor plus healthy!

Vegan Tostadas

I would be lying if I told you we didn’t eat these EVERY Friday night.

We look forward to these vegan tostadas like you wouldn’t believe.

One Friday we were going car shopping and I knew we would be home late so I made a soup for dinner instead of these tostadas and boy did I hear about it.

When you try them you will see why.

What is a tostada?

Tostadas are basically toasted or fried corn tortillas.

Which basically makes them very similar to hard tacos I think tostadas are a little easier to eat.

Hard tacos seem to always fall apart for me. Perhaps I am the problem?

How do you get the toasty tostada?

You have a couple options here. The easiest one is to buy them already cooked.

I have always spotted them at every grocery store.

Another option is you can fry them in oil, I never do this option as I try to eat mostly oil free.

You can bake them or my preferred choice is to cook them in the microwave.

I will say doing the microwave thing is a bit time consuming. But they are SO tasty.

They also have a baked version at some stores but my usual stores only have the pre-made fried version.

What do you need for these vegan tostadas?

  • quinoa
  • water
  • taco seasoning
  • salsa
  • corn
  • black beans (or fav beans)
  • Corn tortillas
  • refried beans
  • avocado/guacamole ( Salt, garlic powder, onion powder)

How do you make these vegan quinoa bean tostadas?

Start by cooking your quinoa.

Take a small pan that has a lid and add your quinoa and 2 cups water, stir.

Let this come to a boil then turn it to low heat, place the lid on it and cook for 12- 15 minutes.

Once done stir, remove from hit and let sit.

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Get a cookie sheet and place a Silpat on it.

Dump your quinoa either in a bowl or just on the cookie sheet (to reduce dishes) pour the salsa, taco seasoning, rinsed black beans, and corn, stir until all combined.

Bake this for 30 minutes, then stir and bake for another 15 minutes.

While this is baking make your tostadas in the microwave.

If you want to buy pre-fried tostadas then skip the next step.

<Place two in the microwave and cook for 1 minute, flip and cook for another minute. *This can vary by tortilla brand, some will take an additional 30 seconds. Do this until the desired amount of tortillas are cooked. >

Take your refried beans into a bowl and either just heat them up or add salsa or whatever your heart desires.

Make your guacamole <– Is my favorite simple recipe.

Start layering your tostadas.

Take a cooked tortilla add a thin layer of refried beans, then some guacamole, then add your quinoa mix.

Top with whatever else you would like; olives, vegan cheese, cashew cheese, salsa, cilantro, etc.

And enjoy!

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
