Hi friends! I’m bringing back these delicious Vegetarian sweet potato tostadas from a few years ago because they are easy, delicious and you all asked for more healthy vegetarian recipes. Boom. Now let’s read on.

Winter is going to be the death of me. I’m so sick of the snow and cold wind. PLUS I need to get a light so that my pictures will turn out better when it’s too dark to go outside. It’s so annoying. Ok, enough. I’ll stop complaining. Let’s talk about vegetarian sweet potato tostadas instead.

These tostadas were so easy and delicious. I don’t usually like sweet potatoes, but the husband does so I gave this a whirl. I loved the little spice and kick from the cumin with the warm, tender sweetness of the sweet potato and all of it cooled off by the creamy avocado. Totally worth trying. It’s light, but filling. Fast, but delicious.
