Hellooooo Friends! I’m excited to share this recipe that I made up while shopping at Earth Fare a little ways back. I had intentions of making a veggie and black bean tostada, but found some black lentils and decided to experiment. Scary, I know! Trust me on this one though!
- corn tortillas
- 1 red pepper, diced
- 1 green pepper, diced
- 1 1/2 cups of fresh sweet corn (frozen works too)
- 1 can of black lentils
- 1 jar of your favorite salsa
- 6 oz Plain Non Fat Chobani Greek Yogurt
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 lime
- salt and pepper
- fresh cilantro
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
You always want to start out doing your prep work, and it will make cooking so much easier! Chop those peppers!
Heat oven to 350 degrees
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced peppers, season with salt and pepper, and cook just until they begin to soften. Next add the corn, black lentils, cumin, salt , pepper, and the juice of half a lime. Heat through and then remove skillet from heat.
Now spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Add your corn tortillas, I would recommend 2 per person. Spray the tops of the tortillas with cooking spray and bake for 5-6 minutes. Flip the tortillas and bake an additional 2-3 minutes, or until crisp.
While you are baking your tostadas… Take your plain non fat chobani yogurt, and mix in the zest of 1 lime, and the juice of 1/2 lime.
Once you have baked your tortillas, top each one with your favorite salsa, probably about 1/8 cup per tortillas, a spoonful of the black lentil and veggie mixture. And do not forget the cheese!
Bake for about 3 – 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Top with the Lime Chobani and Fresh Cilantro (I did not have cilantro, sadness)
Whoa… these were so good! I thoroughly enjoyed this and would definitely make them again. They are lighter than your traditional tostadas, which I love equally, but who doesn’t like variety?! The lime chobani was sent this over the top, and so happy I incorporated that versus sour cream. I can’t wait to make these again soon!
