Sunday BBQ: Grilled Vegetable Tostadas

I'm having my friend over for dinner this weekend, and I'm going to bust out the new grill pan for something different and new: these grilled vegetable tostadas.

It makes perfect sense: people grill pizza, so why not grill tortillas? I love feta cheese, but if you're less of a fan, you can always substitute another cheese, like Mexican chihuahua, for instance. To get this easy recipe,

Ingredients

3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for grates
3 medium zucchini (1 1/2 pounds total), cut into 1/2-inch-wide slices on the diagonal
4 portobello mushrooms (1 pound total), stemmed
1 1/2 bunches scallions, root ends trimmed
Coarse salt and ground pepper
4 flour tortillas (10-inch or burrito-size)
3 cups store-bought fresh salsa
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (1 cup)
1 lime, cut lengthwise into 4 wedges (optional), for serving

Directions

  1. Heat grill to high; lightly oil grates.
  2. In separate piles, arrange zucchini, mushrooms, and scallions on a baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Working in batches if necessary, remove each pile of vegetables from baking sheet.
  3. Grill, turning once, until lightly browned and tender, 2 minutes for scallions, 6 minutes for mushrooms, and 8 minutes for zucchini. Return all vegetables to baking sheet.
  4. Slice mushrooms into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Set aside.
  5. Brush tortillas with remaining tablespoon oil; grill, turning frequently, until browned and very crispy, about 2 minutes.
  6. Place 1 tortilla on each serving plate; cover evenly with mushrooms and zucchini.
  7. Using kitchen shears, snip scallions over vegetables.
  8. Top with salsa, and sprinkle with feta; serve with lime wedges, if desired.

Serves 4.

this recipe has been on martha stewart's website for years. we make it sometimes and it is delicious, though not enough by itself for my husband. usually that is remedied by a large amount of chips and salsa!

yumm...that really looks good. i've seen a few TV chefs do the whole grilling tortilla thing, and i think that this recipe sounds great with the savory aspect of some of the ingredients. with the weather turning a bit cooler this time of year, although you're not grilling outside - it's almost the end of grilling season, so it's a great way to 'go out with a bang'.
