Black Bean Tostados


Serves 4

This dish is a favorite. You will enjoy the combination of the beans, fresh avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, and cumin. The endive and the lightly-salted tortillas provide a satisfying crunch. And its effortless to prepare.

4 nine-inch tortillas
3/4 t cumin
2 T white wine vinegar
3 T olive oil (or oil from sun-dried tomatoes)
1 19-oz can organic black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 c sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and cubed
2 scallions, or yellow onions chopped
1 c cabbage, shredded (or rainbow slaw)
2 c lettuce

Spray both sides of tortillas with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. Broil 3-4 minutes, flip and broil reverse side until lightly browned. In a small bowl, whisk cumin, vinegar, olive oil and salt. In a large bowl, combine beans, sun-dried tomatoes, scallions or onions, avocado and cabbage. Add dressing and lightly toss. Season to taste with salt and pepper. To assemble, place lettuce on tortillas and top with bean mixture.
