Don't forget to include thick slices of avocado, fresh sprouts, and a generous spread of miso-carrot sauce.

Amber says of this recipe, "Between my garden and the farmers’ market, I rarely have to go to the supermarket in summer. Vegetables can be turned into crisp crackers, pizza crusts, and tostadas. Topped with plump, freshly picked tomatoes, buttery avocados, spicy jalapeños, and a burst of corn from the cob, you’ve got a gourmet meal fit for serving company. I use my Excalibur dehydrator frequently in summer to save extra produce from spoiling. This way, I can enjoy the harvest well into fall and winter. These easy tostadas will keep several months when stored in an airtight container. Choose the highest quality produce for this recipe, which is ideally made in summer when the best tomatoes and corn are in season. You can also make this more or less spicy by adjusting the amount of jalapeño."
I considered naming this one “raw vegan protein butter” since it’s loaded with complete protein from the sprouted quinoa. When I make it I store it in the fridge (for no more than 2 days) and use as dip, dressing or butter. This time around I grabbed a few baby carrots from the garden and paired with the smoky butter it was the most perfect afternoon snack. You are very welcome to do the same but be prepared for the complete and utter perfection of texture and flavor combination.
