So dinner last night was pretty amazing. I was going to write “epic” but I kind of hate that word. I’ll stick with words like amazing, awesome and delicious. They are more my speed. Although… I will break out legendary occasionally as a nod to How I Met Your Mother and Barney Stinson.
I saw a picture of a taco tostado or something along those lines yesterday…and from that one picture I knew what was for dinner. I sent my husband arm deep in our pantry to find the garbanzo bean flour. I just *knew* we had some even if it was at the back of our almost 2 feet deep cabinets. When he pulled out every other flour under the sun and then finally found it, I may have squealed. Yes, food is that exciting in this house.
This is a multi-step dinner, but it all came together in about 20-25 minutes. So just do it. If you don’t have garbanzo bean flour, then feel free to use a tortilla or brown rice or quinoa flour instead.
[print_this] Mexican Socca Tostata
Tostada (makes 6-7):
- 1 cup garbanzo bean flour
- 1 cup water
- dash of salt
In a frying pan, sprayed with non stick spray spoon the batter and let brown on one side for 1-2 minutes over medium heat. Flip pancake over and let cook on remaining side. Remove and set aside on plate.
Refried Beans Dip
- 1 can fat free refried beans
- 1 1/2 cups frozen chopped spinach
- 1 small can tomato paste OR 1/3 cup tomato sauce
- sea salt and pepper to taste
In a medium saucepan combine all ingredients and mix together well until heated through. Keep stirring so bottom doesn’t burn.
- 1 pound chicken breasts, cut into strips
- 1 zucchini, diced
- 1 1/2 cups baby bella mushrooms
- 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
- dash of cayenne pepper
- sea salt and black pepper to taste
In a large skillet, cook chicken in chicken broth. When almost cooked through add zucchini and mushrooms. Add spices and cook through, stirring occasionally.
- Romaine lettuce, chopped
- Mexican or cheddar cheese, shredded
- 0% plain chobani
On a plate, layer socca pancake, then spread a generous layer of refried bean dip. Next add chicken and veggies. Then top with lettuce, cheese and a scoop of chobani! Enjoy! [/print_this]
I wish there were leftovers from this, but since there aren’t I’m off to figure out what else there is to eat! Also feel free to adapt this to your needs by using just veggies, adding peppers, tofu or even mahi mahi. So many delicious options!
