You Gotta Love the One You're With

There might not be a tostada I don't like. There is a restaurant called the V Spot here in Brooklyn that has been known to serve a very tasty vegetarian tostada brunch. Today I had to recreate that soft velvetty dream atop its hard shell for myself or go mad trying.

Canned black beans smashed with a little Greek yogurt, cumin, salt to start. Smashed avocados with lemon juice, salt. Freshly made crispy fried corn tortillas. Cold lettuce, onions, and tomatoes and I was ready to build. First a nice painting of the avocado mash, a generous slathering of the beans, chopped fresh onions, lettuce and then tomato with some cilantro and sliced jalapeno.

No cheese just the incredibly cool and creamy flavors mixed with the crunchy flat base. Today I'm convinced there is nothing better than this tostada.

Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
