CLAYUDAS AND SWEET SUMMER CORN for DINNER.
Recipe from Vegetarian Times June 2008 issue.
Thin Whole Wheat flour tortillas are slathered with a spicy black bean puree, baked, then topped with a red and green cabbage slaw marinated in lime juice.
Clayudas are a Oaxacan dish.
You can call them Mexican pizzas.
Traditionally, giant sized tortillas are used that can feed a whole family.
This version uses an 8 inch whole wheat flour tortilla, for one person.
Because you bake these, they turn out to be healthier than pizzas or even tostadas (which use a fried corn tortilla).
You can bake these in the oven or a toaster oven.
Once baked, you top with the marinated slaw and enjoy whole or cut into quarters.
