3 tbsp cooked lentils

1 tbsp of taco seasoning

3 corn tortillas

1 tbsp hummus (any flavor, I used jalapeno)

1/2 chopped tomatoes

1/2 cup of your choice of lettuce (I used baby kale and spinach)

1/2 of an avocado sliced

Lime squeezed on top

Nopales “Cactus” Beet Tostadas (Vegan):

1 Nopale chopped

1/2 small yellow onion

2 beet tortillas

1 tbsp hummus (any flavor, I used jalapeno)

2 sliced red radishes

hand full of baby kale

Lime squeezed on top

  1. If you have a fresh nopale you want to wear gloves to protect your hands from the cactus hairs and lay it flat while cutting off the spines (thorns) with a knife then cut all around the rim until you’ve removed all the thorns.
  2. Chop up your nopale and onion.
  3. Heat the pan for your tostadas on a medium heat and cook beet tortillas for 5-6min on each side until crispy.
  4. In another pan add oil and brown your onions.
  5. Add the cactus to your onions. They will have a stickiness to them that evaporates as they cook and go from bright green to a dark green when finished.
  6. Spread hummus on each tostadas and add your nopales.
  7. Add radishes and kale then squeeze some lime and enjoy.
