30 – 45 Minutes
These easy vegetarian and gluten-free tostadas combine earthy black beans and seared summer squash with crisp pickled red onion and radishes.
In your bag
- 1 organic red onion
- 2 or 3 organic radishes (about 2 ounces total)
- 1 organic lime
- 8 Mi Rancho 100% corn tortillas
- 2 organic eggs
- 2 organic yellow or other summer squash
- 1 cup cooked black beans
- Sun Basket black bean spice blend (granulated garlic - coriander - sweet smoked paprika)
- 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh cilantro
- 1½ ounces queso fresco
The tortillas can also be crisped on the stovetop: In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches, add the tortillas and cook, turning once, until crisp, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Season with salt.
Quick pickles boast all the salty-sweet tang of their naturally fermented counterparts but require a fraction of the time. Natural fermentation relies on lactic acid and bacterial cultures to slowly transform brined vegetables set out at room temperature into tart treats. Quick pickles use a stronger brine and sometimes heat to achieve similar results but much more . . . quickly.
