Easy Raw Tostadas {Recipe}

Who says tostadas can’t be healthy? Pass the avocado and salsa, please!

For a twist on Taco Tuesday, we're thinking crisp, crunchy tostadas topped with a mountain of fresh vegetables and produce of your choosing. Sound like a plan? Then this recipe from Summer Sanders' Raw and Radiant will do just the trick.

Serves 6 

What You Need
For the tortilla:
2½ cups fresh corn kernels
1¼ cups chopped red bell pepper
½ cup water
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1½ teaspoons chili powder
1½ teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
¾ cup ground flax seeds
 
For the toppings:
½ cup vegan sour cream
1 cup shredded red cabbage
1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
½ cup pico de gallo salsa
¼ cup diced Hass avocado

What You Do:

1. Into a food processor, combine corn, bell pepper, water, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, and salt and process to blend. Pour the mixture into a bowl and stir in ground flax seeds. Let mixture set for 10 minutes to thicken.

2. Spread mixture onto dehydrator sheets in 3-inch circles to make 12 to 14 shells. Dehydrate for 8 to 15 hours at 115 degrees until crunchy. Top dehydrated tortillas with toppings and serve.
