Meatless Fridays: Vegetarian Breakfast Tostada

Ah…Lent…it brings out the vegetarian in me for sure! I notice, though, that lately I’ve not eaten a lot of meat on any day of the week. Dairy? Yes. Meat? Not so much. That could have something to do with the fact that I have an extremely high maintenance pouch. Meat has to be cooked just right or it gets …
