These plant-based Creamy Black Bean and Roasted Sweet Potato Tostadas have it all: a salty, crunchy gluten free flour tortilla topped with creamy refried black beans, crispy seasoned roasted sweet potatoes, crunchy and flavorful red cabbage slaw, cool and creamy avocado, fresh cilantro, green onions and zesty lime juice.  Altogether this wholesome vegan dish is flavor-packed and so easy to make.

Creamy Black Bean and Crispy Sweet Potato Tostadas

Lately for Taco Tuesdays we have been doing tostadas instead of our normal soft tacos.  I am completely obsessed with this new spin on taco night.  If you are new to tostadas, they are basically like a giant salty chip piled high with your favorite taco toppings.  These Creamy Black Bean and Roasted Sweet Potato Tostadas are nutritious, full of rich flavor and easy to prepare.  The recipe is made with simple clean ingredients and is naturally gluten free, plant-based and soy free.  It is one of my favorite quick and satisfying meals for a busy weeknight.  And it also works great for casual entertaining (especially for game day parties).  Everyone loves to customize their crispy tostada and stack it with their favorite taco toppings. 

Sweet potato Tostadas

The salty crunch of the tostada smothered in creamy black beans and ultra-crispy roasted sweet potatoes is heaven.  I love the contrast of all these warm ingredients against the cool and refreshing red cabbage slaw, avocado, cilantro, green onions and lime juice.  Each bite is bursting with flavor and texture. 

You can pick the entire toastada up with your hands to start but usually toward the end the fork comes in handy.  It gets messy but it is all amazing.
