Sweetpotatoes, kale, black beans & jalapeno cheddar make a mighty fantastic tostada ~ by Deanna Segrave-Daly, RD
Disclosure: The California Sweetpotato Council compensated The Recipe ReDux (co-owned by ReganMillerJones, Inc. and Teaspoon Communications), to sponsor this recipe contest. We’re not eligible to win prizes related to the competition. I additionally acquired a field of California sweetpotatoes to make use of for recipe testing. My ideas and opinions are my very own.
No, that’s not a typo within the recipe title.
There’s a brand new spud on the town by the use of the West coast and it’s the California sweetpotato – as in sweetpotato being one phrase not two (although my spell verify begs to vary.)
The California Sweetpotato Council is sponsoring this Recipe ReDux recipe problem and is spreading the phrase about these beauties, that are totally different from different candy potatoes on the market. Some information about California sweetpotatoes:
- Sweetpotatoes are grown in small portions in gentle sand and are hand sorted.
- Sweetpotatoes present 4 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein and are a great supply of Vitamin C.
- You get all of the Vitamin A you want for the day in a single medium sized sweetpotato – for less than 105 energy.
- Sweetpotatoes are candy and moist in comparison with yams that are extra dry and starchy.
And as you’ll be able to see above, all aren’t essentially orange. The three hottest varieties embrace:
Covington (Orange) – Rose coloured pores and skin and tremendous orange flesh. Nice for roasting and mashing.
O’Henry (Tan) – Pale copper pores and skin and candy, white flesh (it virtually seems like an everyday potato!) Nice for soups and stews.
Diane (Pink) – Pink pores and skin and deep orange flesh. Nice for making sweetpotato fries.
I ended up utilizing a mixture of the O’Henrys and Dianes for these tostadas. Talking of tostadas – a phrase about tortillas normally. A couple of weeks again, I had an epiphany once I made Lindsay @ Lean Inexperienced Bean’s recipe for complete wheat tortillas. So easy, really easy and so scrumptious – I can’t be going again to the packaged ones anytime quickly.
Extra lately, fellow ReDux member, Robin @ Robins Chew, shared that she took inspiration from the identical recipe and made home made corn tortillas from masa.
Now, I didn’t pull it collectively in time to make my very own corn tortillas for this recipe publish. However I plan to make them quickly so I could make these yummy tostadas usually this fall and winter when sweetpotatoes and kale are ample.
