Spring has arrived and that means it’s time for lighter meals made with wholesome ingredients that are fun to prepare! Homemade tostadas made with recipe ready butternut squash and Taylor Farms Ginger Garlic Stir Fry Kit are easy to make and the whole family can join in. Perfect for Taco Tuesday!
I love the fact that the Taylor Farms Stir Fry Kit contains a variety of pre-washed vegetables like brussels sprouts, kale, carrots and bok choy which are all high in vitamins A and C. It’s great to know that convenience does not have to mean sacrificing time, freshness and quality.
Adding roasted butternut squash to masa for tostadas or tacos is a great way to introduce even more goodness into your diet and everybody will be begging for more! I often include other roasted or sautéed vegetables such as garlic, spinach or even carrots for various colors and flavors. The possibilities are endless!
A few tips:
The tostadas can be made ahead of time and popped into the oven right before serving to crisp them up for an even speedier process.
Grilled chicken may be left out or substituted for any other protein of your choice. Try grilling up tofu and brush with the some of the ginger garlic sauce for a burst of flavor.
If you prefer larger tostadas, simply divide the prepared dough into 8 equal portions before flattening and shallow frying.
Butternut Squash Tostadas with Ginger Garlic Stir Fry
1 Package Taylor Farms Organic Cubed Butternut Squash
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cumin seeds or cumin powder
1 cup instant corn masa
2-3 tbsp water
1 Taylor Farms Ginger Garlic Stir Fry Kit
1 cup cooked, shredded chicken
1/2 cup queso fresco
1/4 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
Cilantro to garnish.
Preheat oven to 425F.
Add the Taylor Farms butternut squash to a roasting dish and toss with olive oil, sea salt and cumin. Roast for 15-20 minutes then remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Add the cooled squash to a food processor with the masa and process on low until combined. Slowly add the water until the mixture comes together but is not sticky. Remove from the food processor and divide into 16 equal portions. Use a tortilla press or rolling pin to flatten the dough between two pieces of wax paper until they are fairly thin. Shallow fry in batches until crispy. Place on a baking sheet in a warm oven until ready to assemble.
Cook your Taylor Farms Ginger Garlic Stir Fry Kit as directed on the package. Add the cooked chicken and toss to combine.
Divide the stir fry amongst the tostada rounds and top with queso fresco, pumpkin seeds and cilantro.
