Tostadas w/ Oven Roasted (or Grilled) Bell Pepper & Garlic Feta Spread

  • Prep: 25-30 min
  • Total: 35 min

  • Vegetables

Ingredients

- 2 red bell peppers (you can also gril them in a pan)
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp red chili flakes (optional)
- salt & pepper to taste

For the Garlic & Feta spread (1 pers):
- 1 tbsp garlic spread (Boursin or a vegan spread)
- 1 tbsp feta

For garnish:
- sprouts
- Parmesan (vegan) cheese
- Basil leaves (finely sliced)

Instructions

  1. Cut the pepper in half and roast them (skin side up) in a preheated oven 250 C or 482 F for about 25-30 min (depending on how hot your oven is) until the skin is burnt. Then cover with cling film for about 15 min and remove the black skin after.

  2. In the meantime, make the marinade for the bell peppers and combine olive oil, garlic powder, chili flakes (optional) and salt & pepper to a bowl. Whisk well and pour over the roasted, skin removed bell peppers. Let this sit and marinade while you prep the other ingredients.

  3. Then with a fork smash the feta cheese and mix it with the garlic spread. Check for seasoning and set this aside.

  4. Finally heat up the tortillas in a pan until they are crispy on both sides. This takes about 2-3 minutes om medium to high heat. Let them cool off when they’re crispy.

  5. Then assemble the dish by smearing a layer of the garlic feta spread on the tostadas. Then put half of the roasted bell peppers on top, together with some sprouts, sliced Basil leaves and sprinkle with some Parmesan cheese. Drizzle some of the leftover roasted bell pepper oil and season with some black pepper and Enjoy immediately!

    TIP:
    - Add this spread or these roasted bell peppers on a sandwich, toss the peppers through a salad or your pasta.
