Open-faced "Tostada" Salad
Don't faint...I have a recipe to share!! This was on Oprah's web page. The only change I'll make is to use soy cheese.
Recipe created by Cat Cora, Iron Chef Serves 4
2 whole wheat tortillas
1/2 cup frozen corn , thawed
1 can kidney beans , rinsed
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
6 ounces mild cheddar cheese , shredded
1/4 head of lettuce , chopped or 1/2 cup salad greens
1 medium tomato , chopped
1/4 cup salsa , if desired
2 Tablespoons chopped scallions
Lime zest (optional)
Handful chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Place 2 tortillas in an ovenproof dish.
Add corn, beans and rice to cover the tortillas and sprinkle with cheese.
Put tostada into the oven until the cheese melts and the beans bubble around the edges, about 7 to 8 minutes.
Take the dish out of the oven and top with chopped lettuce, tomato, salsa, chopped scallions and chopped cilantro.
Sprinkle with lime zest if desired.
Cut into 4 portions and serve immediately.
