Tostados are a fun mix of tacos and pizza. You can top them with any veggies you like! Crunchy tostado shells are often sold near the taco shells in the international foods aisle, or you can use soft tortillas. This recipe comes to us from registered dietitian Allison of the gluten-free meal planning website PrepDish.
Food for Thought: Cilantro is a leafy green herb used in many Latin American and Asian recipes. Some people love its fresh flavor, but others think it tastes like soap! If you don’t like the taste, you might not be a picky eater. Scientists recently discovered that the flavor we taste from cilantro is determined by our genes.
