Italian Tostada

Sunday nights I love finishing up whatever ingredients I have left in my refrigerator and starting the new week with a clean slate and brand new grocery list! For those who don't know me, going to the market is one of my favorite pastimes, so a new grocery list is always exciting for me. Anyway, this past weekend was no different. I whipped together some ingredients we had on hand, and as my boyfriend took his first bite, he said to me: "Woah. You need to try this." We very quickly realized I had to share the recipe on my blog... because YOU need to try this, too.



Ingredients:
(Makes 1 Italian Tostada, which can serve 1-2 people)
  • 1 brown rice tortilla
  • 1 cup organic baby spinach (washed)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh pesto. (I used Basil-Tops Dairy Free Pesto Perfectto from Whole Foods. You can also make your own using the recipe found on my Zucchini Spaskinny page by clicking here.)
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried or roasted tomatoes with herbs and olive oil. (Again, I used brushetta and roasted tomatoes found from the tomato bar at Whole Foods. You can use store bought organic sun dried tomatoes, or you can make your own using my recipe here.
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Place tortilla on a cookie sheet. Place spinach leaves around the center, leaving about 1/2 inch for "crust." On top of the spinach, spread your pesto and tomatoes. I drizzled a bit more olive oil from the tomatoes on top of everything.
  3. Bake in oven for 7 minutes. Turn broiler on for last minute to make the top crispy.
  4. When you take it out, the crust will be crunchy, but the center will be the perfect almost thin doughy texture.  You can delicately cut the Italian Tostada into pizza slices,  or you can just kind of fold it over on to itself, New York Pizza style. I personally prefer tearing off pieces and then folding those smaller pieces onto themselves, like mini quesadillas lol. This is your food, so eat it your way :)

  8. asansör



    Elektrik tahrik kasnaklı asansörlerden farklı olarak hidrolik asansörlerde motor sadece yukarı çıkış için çalışır, aşağı inişte motor çalışmaz. -Karşı ağırlık kullanılmaz. -En üstte makine dairesine ihtiyaç duymadığı için mimari açıdan da tercih sebebidir. -Çok sessiz çalışır. Binalarda motor sesi duyamazsınız. -Elektrik kesintisinde ilave sisteme gerek olmadan otomatik katına getirme ve kurtarma sistemi mevcuttur. -Deprem ve yangında daha emniyetlidir.Yangında makine dairesi alt katta olduğundan ulaşım kolaydır. Asansörün komple yükü diğer sistemlerde kuyu üstünde taşınırken hidrolik sistemlerde yük bina temeli tarafından taşındığı için atalet kuvveti daha azdır. Deprem anında büyük hasar ve yaralanma olasılığı %90 oranında azalır. Gerek villa tipi asansörler, gerek araç asansörleri ve yük asansörlerinde hidrolik asansör tercihimizdir. yük asansörü
