Makes 5

Cooks In

30 minutes



These beetroot tortillas come into their own when fried for totopos or tostadas, deepening their red colour and heightening their sweetness, makes a visual as well as culinary treat. Tangy soft goats cheese mixed with chopped fresh herbs and green chilli make a perfect foil to the beetroots natural sweetness, topping it with fried Japanese king oyster mushroom, adds body and some ‘meat’ to this handsome tostada. NOTE: However care needs to be taken when frying or baking the extra sugar that the beet root adds to the dough caramelises quickly.
