This is one of those dishes that I point to when people ask me, “Oh you’re a vegetarian? What do you eat?” Or the less polite “Must be all salads, hohoho (cue a “friendly” pat on the shoulder or equivalent)“ Or “Rabbit food!” No way is this rabbit food. These tostadas (adapted from Good Food BBC’s black bean tostada recipe) are delicious. Not being a fan of black beans however, I substitute kidney beans (they’re easier to get) and my topping of preference is chopped tomatoes with mozzarella and yellow peppers.
While doing an assignment for college recently, I wandered the streets of Dublin, Galway and Kildare with a microphone asking people whether they thought an eco-friendly Christmas was possible. What I got was an entire range of ideas that I had never thought of, and I think that I will share.
