Yield: 4 tostadas
Preparation time: 10 minutes
4 corn tortillas
¼ cup diced tomato
¼ cup chopped cilantro
1 green onion, white and greens sliced
1 tbsp minced serrano pepper (optional)
1 tsp lime juice
1/8 tsp salt
½ cup no-salt-added kidney or black beans, smashed
4 egg whites, scrambled
¾ cup napa cabbage, thinly sliced
Preheat the broiler and arrange the tortillas in a single layer on a baking sheet. Broil until they are crisp and begin to brown, about 5 minutes.
In a small dish, combine the tomato, cilantro, green onion and pepper. Add the lime juice and salt and stir to incorporate all ingredients. Set aside.
Assemble the tostadas by topping each tortilla with 1/8 cup of smashed beans and 1 scrambled egg white. Top each with an equal amount of the tomato salsa and the napa cabbage. Serve warm.
