This is a healthy take of a classic Mexican dish; the tostada. Depending on how they're cooked and the ingredients used, they can be very calorific, however our tried and tested recipe is not only healthy it's low in calories and tastes amazing!

INGREDIENTS

Rapeseed oil, quantity can vary

1 tsp ground cumin

1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

1/4 tsp sea salt/Himalayan salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

12 oz chicken breast, diced

1 haas avocado, sliced

1 chopped red onion

1 cup chopped zucchini

1/2 head iceberg lettuce, cored and shredded

1/2 jalapeno, seeded and chopped

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided

4 corn tortillas (gluten-free available)

3/4 cup light mozzarella, shredded

Yields 2 servings


DIRECTIONS

To make the tortillas: Pour some rapeseed oil for frying into a large heavy-bottomed pot to a depth of about 2 inches. Place over medium heat and heat to 190c (170c fan). Add the tortillas, one at a time and fry until golden brown and crispy, about 1 1/2 minutes. Using tongs, transfer to a paper towel-lined pan and sprinkle with salt. Set aside.

To make the chicken: In a small bowl, mix together the chicken, lime juice, cumin, zucchini, chopped onion, some oil, cilantro and salt and season with pepper to taste. Heat a frying pan and add some oil. Add the contents of the bowl to the pan and sauté for 3 minutes or until chicken is done. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

To assemble the tostadas: On a baking tray, line it with baking paper and lay down the tortillas. Evenly spread them with the cooked chicken and sprinkle with some of the cheese. Put the tray in the oven at around 200c (180c fan) until the cheese is lightly browned and melted, about 2 minutes. Take them out of the oven and divide the tortillas between 2 plates. Top them with the lettuce, avocado and jalapeno. Sprinkle any leftover cilantro. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

Optional - The mozzarella doesn't have to be melted in the oven and can just be sprinkled on at the end but it does taste great melted!
