Vegetarian Tostadas with Creamy Purple Cabbage Slaw

5 from 1 reviews

Cauliflower and walnuts are the base of the “meat” on these vegetarian tostadas. The toppings and fresh cilantro lime slaw really take it over the top though!




  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a sheet pan (affiliate) with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Add cauliflower florets, walnuts, oil, paprika, garlic, salt & pepper to a food processor (affiliate) and pulse until it resembles the texture of ground meat. Transfer to sheet pan (affiliate) and spread out as much as possible. Cook 30-35 minutes (stirring halfway through) or until browned and slightly crispy. 
  3. Meanwhile, make the slaw. Mix yogurt and lime juice in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add purple cabbage and cilantro, then toss well to evenly coat. Set aside.
  4. To assemble, layer in the following order: tostada shell, smashed avocado, cauliflower/walnut “meat”, black beans, slaw, pepitas, garnishes (if using).
