Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Pickle the red onion and radishes

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Peel and halve the red onion. Coarsely chop half for the black beans; thinly slice half for pickling.
  • Trim the ends from the radishes; cut the radishes in half, then thinly slice crosswise.
In a medium bowl, combine the sliced onion, radishes, and quick-pickle brine and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Cook the eggs

Bring a medium sauce pot of water to a boil, and fill a medium bowl with ice water. Carefully lower the eggs into the boiling water and cook for exactly 5 minutes for soft-cooked (for hard-cooked eggs, cook for 3 to 4 minutes longer). Transfer the eggs to the ice water to cool. Carefully peel the eggs.
While the eggs cook, warm the tortillas.

3

Crisp the tortillas

On a sheet pan, brush the tortillas all over with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil and season with salt; arrange side by side. Roast in the oven, turning halfway through, until the tortillas are crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer the tortillas to a plate.
While the tortillas crisp, prepare the squash and black beans.

4

Prep and cook the squash and black beans

  • Peel and thinly slice the shallots.
  • Trim the ends from the summer squash; cut the squash in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices.
  • Rinse the black beans.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the reserved chopped onion and shallots, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until they start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the squash, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring often, until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the black bean spice blend and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the beans and cook, stirring to blend, until hot, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
While the squash and beans cook, prepare the garnishes.

5

Prep the garnishes

  • Cut the lime into wedges.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
  • Cut the eggs lengthwise into quarters.

6

Serve

Set out the tortillas, squash-bean mixture, pickles, lime wedges, cilantro, eggs, and queso fresco. Invite everyone to assemble their own tostadas.

Chef’s Tip: If you’re looking for an easier way to peel the eggs, using a serrated knife, cut the cooked eggs in half (shell and all!) and scoop out each half with a spoon.

Kids can!
  • Time and peel the eggs.
  • Stir the pickle ingredients.
  • Oil the tortillas.
  • Rinse the beans.
  • Set out the tostada toppings.
