Black Bean Tostada

A healthy, low-fat version of a classic favorite. Dig in to crispy baked tostadas with all the right spices, served with fresh tomato salsa, shredded lettuce, and a squeeze of lime. These tostadas are full of flavor and fun to eat!

Tomatoes: Harness critical micronutrients, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals to support many functions of the liver. Lycopene is a beloved nutrient that the liver uses to shield itself from cell damage, plus lycopene helps the liver detox red blood cells safely, smoothly, and efficiently. The fruit acids in tomatoes help keep the gallbladder healthy, helping rid sludge from the gallbladder and even reduce gallstone size.

Lettuce: An extremely cleansing tool for your liver that you can apply on a daily basis. The leafy outer greens of lettuce provide dozens of micronutrients for the liver to stay healthy and balanced, while the core of the lettuce, down closer to the root, provides milky chemical compounds that act as a purging mechanism for it.

Black Bean Tostada

Ingredients:
4-5 small gluten & corn free tortillas
1 1/2 cups black beans
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp onion powder
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder (optional)
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Sea salt, to taste (optional)
1 cup fresh shredded lettuce, to serve
1/2 cup chopped tomato, to serve
Lime juice, to serve
1/2 cup fresh tomato salsa, to serve

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400F. Place the tortillas in the oven, straight on the rack, and bake for 2-4 minutes, until browned and crispy. Keep a close eye on them since they burn very quickly. When crisp, remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

Add the black beans, water, lime juice, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, chili powder, ground cumin and sea salt (if using) to a saucepan over medium-low heat. Simmer the beans uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes, until the water has evaporated. Mash with fork or blend with a hand blender to desired consistency.

To serve, divide the black bean mash between tostadas and top with shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, tomato salsa and a squeeze of lime juice. Serve immediately.
