Turkish light lunch tostadas
A healthy alternative to bread and sandwiches, these tasty tostadas are a bit of eye candy and a tasty treat. Sweet, savoury, nutty and cheesey – delish!
1 small bag of fine lettuce greens or rocket
140gm walnuts or walnut pieces
1 red apple cored with skin on and diced into 1cm cubes
1 small bag of red seedless grapes
1 pack of creamy blue cheese
Olive oil spray
1 pack of Gerry’s Go No Gluten Wraps Medium (for wheat-free, gluten-free option)
1 pack of Gerry’s Go Low Carb Wraps (for low-carb option)
Makes 6 tostadas (six servings)
Prep time: 20 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins
Preparing the tostadas
Tostadas may be prepared ahead and stored in an airtight container for a few days, although they really are best fresh and a little warm from the heating.
Heat wraps in sandwich press, frypan (until steaming) or oven (200C for around 7 mins) until hot but not burnt and leave to cool. Brush Go No Gluten Wraps with a little water before heating. Wraps will harden as they cool. If heating in the oven, spray a little olive oil spray 0n the tray beforehand.
Dressing the tostadas
When cool and hard, spread each wrap liberally with hummus – about the same as you’d put on toast but not too much ahead of time as the moisture in the hummus will eventually soften the tostadas
Top with greens, then apples, then grapes, walnuts and globs (around a teaspoon each of blue cheese torn apart with your hands).
Season with salt and pepper and a little dressing of your choice if you wish although there should be no need as the flavours of sweet grapes and apples married with the saltiness of the blue cheese should balance nicely on their own.
