You don’t need anything fancy! A large pot for cooking the curry, an oven for toasting the tortillas, and a blender for the jalapeño sauce will do the trick. Keep it simple and have fun cooking!
Are the extra toppings necessary?
While the extra toppings like pomegranate seeds and Follow Your Heart Feta are super tasty and add a special touch, you can totally customize this dish! Try alternatives like diced avocado, shredded lettuce, or a sprinkle of chopped nuts or minced bell peppers for a different twist on your Tostadas.
What else can I serve with this Pumpkin Curry Tostadas?
These Tostadas are awesome on their own, but you can make it a meal with some fresh sides. A simple salad with lemon vinaigrette or a side of steamed veggies would complement the flavors perfectly. It’s all about your taste buds’ preferences! I love to serve these Tostadas with Stuffing, Sushi, and Cucumber Salad.
How long does this recipe last?
You can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-5days. Make sure to keep the ingredients in separate containers and since the tortillas might lose some of their crispiness, toast them before you serve. but the flavors will still be fantastic when reheated!
Will non-vegans like this?
Absolutely! This dish is so full of flavor that even non-vegans will find it incredibly satisfying. The creamy curry, crunchy tortillas, and a burst of unique spicy toppings are a crowd-pleaser for everyone, no matter their dietary preferences. Get ready for some happy taste buds at your table!
