Looking for a delicious way to get your veggies in this winter? These roasted vegetable tostadas will keep you satisfied with a spicy kick.
10 ounces button mushrooms, trimmed and quartered
2 zucchini (about 1 pound), thinly sliced
2 red bell peppers, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
3 tablespoons olive oil
8 corn tortillas
1 15-ounce can refried beans
4 ounces Cheddar, grated (1 cup)
Sour cream, fresh cilantro leaves, and hot sauce, for serving
*QUICK TIP: These tostadas can be made with any combo of fresh vegetables. Substitute an eggplant for the zucchini or corn for the bell peppers.
Heat oven to 450° F. On 2 rimmed baking sheets, toss the mushrooms, zucchini, and bell peppers with 2 tablespoons of the oil and ½ teaspoon salt. Roast, tossing once and rotating the sheets halfway through, until the vegetables are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl.
Place the tortillas on the baking sheets. Dividing evenly, brush with the remaining tablespoon of oil, spread with the refried beans, and sprinkle with the Cheddar. Bake until the beans are warm and the Cheddar is melted, 5 to 7 minutes. Top with the vegetables, sour cream, cilantro, and hot sauce.
