This is a super quick recipe as I’ve used shop bought gluten and dairy free tortillas and sundried tomato paste but feel free to make our own if you are feeling adventurous.

Tostadas are a Mexican dish consisting of a tortilla topped with a selection of meat and vegetables – I like to think of it has a healthy pizza! Great as a lunch or dinner.

Feel free to experiment with the toppings
