This tostada is an easy way to use up what’s left in your fridge, while still transforming them enough so you don’t feel like you’re having #sadleftovers. Plus, we’re obsessed with these crispy grain-free tostadas shells—they’re a totally addictive snack.

Serves 2

2 grain-free tortillas

3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

½ sweet potato

½ recipe of Easy Black Beans or ½ can of rinsed and drained black beans

1 clove of garlic, grated

¼ teaspoon cumin

½ cup water

To garnish:

Pickled onions

Cilantro

Shredded lettuce

Creamy cilantro dressing

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

2. Using 1 tablespoon of olive oil, brush both sides of each tortilla and lay flat on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with a little flaky salt and bake until crispy and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Set aside.

3. Peel the sweet potato, cut into 1-inch pieces, and toss with a little olive oil and a large pinch of salt. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until tender and starting to brown.

4. In a small pan heat another tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cumin and sautee for a minute until fragrant, then add the beans and water. Use a potato masher to smash the beans to a creamy consistency.

5. To assemble the tostadas, spread half the bean mixture over each tortilla. The top with the sweet potatoes, shredded lettuce, pickled onions, and cilantro. Serve with leftover creamy cilantro dressing if you like.
