This is a great quick and easy dinner option for a busy week night. This recipe was veganized from a Real Simple recipe. Enjoy!

Vegetable and Black Bean Tostadas

Serves 4
Hands-On Time: 15m
Total Time: 50m

Ingredients
10 ounces baby bella mushrooms, sliced
2 zucchini (about 1 pound), thinly sliced
2 red bell peppers, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
3 tablespoons olive oil
kosher salt
8 corn tortillas
1 15-ounce can refried black beans or smashed black beans

  1. These look tasty!! I’ll have to give these a try this weekend, Mike would really like them.

  2. Yum! Anything with roasted veggies is a win in my book! 🙂

  3. These look delicious. Being new to the 9-5 job, I’ve recently discovered what it’s like to come home starving and not want to slave over a meal. This is great, because it doesn’t take long, and it could also be prepared beforehand (I could many of my dinners during breakfast!).

  4. Those look incredible. What type of corn tortillas do you use? La Factoria makes the best corn tortillas…and I’ve tried a lot. I’ll need to check if they are vegan friendly.
