Grilled Veggie Tostadas with Fresh Salsa

Grilled Veggie Tostadas with Fresh Salsa

Serves 6

Grilling summer vegetables gives them a smoky sophistication we don't often associate with zucchini and yellow squash. Pile the veggies on top of crisp whole wheat tortillas for an easy seasonal feast.

Ingredients: 
  • 1 pound tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing tortillas
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 green bell peppers, cored, seeded, and cut into thick strips
  • 2 yellow squash, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 2 zucchini, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1 eggplant, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch thick rounds
  • 1 large yellow onion, thickly sliced
  • 6 (6-inch) whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced
  • Lime wedges for garnish

Method: 

Put tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt, black pepper and jalapeños into a medium bowl and toss to combine. Cover and chill.

Preheat grill to medium heat. In a large bowl, mix together oil, chili powder, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and garlic. Add peppers, squash, zucchini, eggplant and onion and toss to coat.

Working in batches, grill vegetables, flipping halfway through, until tender, 5 to 8 minutes total. Transfer to a platter as done. Lightly brush both sides of tortillas with olive oil and grill, flipping once, until just crisp and lightly charred on both sides, about 3 minutes total.

Place one tortilla on each of six plates and top with vegetables, salsa and avocados. Garnish with lime wedges and serve.
