Hi Everyone! Today's recipe is a super easy Vegetarian Recipe, full of flavor with lots of delicious goodness, "Cheesy Zucchini Tostadas". Zucchini are low in calories, but are also a great source of Vitamin A, vitamin B6 and vitamin C. So these delicious Tostadas are not only easy to make, but they are also good for you.  I did add some cheese, but you can use Vegan Cheese to make it even healthier!  Enjoy

Serves 3-4
Ingredients:
  • 4 cups chopped zucchini (I used green and Yellow Zucchini)
  • 1 15oz can of corn kernels
  • ½ cup of chopped onions
  • ½ cup tomatoes finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese ( I used a Mexican Blend. You can use Vegan Cheese if desired.)
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1-2 teaspoons of dry oregano
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

To serve/Garnish:
  • Tostadas  2 per person
  • 1 sliced tomato
  • 1/4 cup of sliced onions
  • Your favorite Salsa
  • ½ cup of shredded cheese

In a large skillet on medium heat add  1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and cook the onion for about 3 minutes or until soft. Add in the tomatoes and the garlic, season with about ½ teaspoon of each: salt, ground black pepper and dry oregano; give it a quick stir and cook for about 2 more minutes or until the garlic becomes aromatic.

After 2 minutes or so, add in the zucchini,and season again with about ½ teaspoon of each: salt, ground black pepper, and dry oregano;  stir together, cover with a lid and cook on medium heat for about 6-10 minutes or until the zucchini is nice and soft, and there is no more liquid in the skillet.

Once the zucchini is soft, add in the corn and the cilantro, mix together and cook for 2 more minutes on high heat or until there is no more liquid in the skillet.

To finish, add in about 1/2 cup of shredded cheese, stir together, taste the flavor and add any more seasoning if needed. Turn off the heat, top the zucchini  mixture with the rest of the cheese,  let it melt a little bit, and then serve.


To serve, grab your tostada, top it with the zucchini mixture, and garnish with shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, onions and if you like, you can also add a little extra shredded cheese and your favorite salsa and that's it!

Enjoy!
