One of summer’s attractions for me is visiting various farmer’s markets. This is where I am an impulsive shopper. The vibrant colors and the varied textures and tastes of the fresh local produce draw me in. Before I know it, I end up with loads of veggies and fruit. My husband meanwhile fills up bags of various types of bread. I guess that is his reward for coming to the farmers markets with me 🙂

End of summer brings in a plethora of delectable veggies and fruit, doesn’t it? I got loads of veggies which will be used for khatkhatey this week.

For easy weeknight tostadas, I roasted some of the sweet potatoes, poblano, sweet mini peppers corn and the wild wonder gourmet medley of tomatoes, in the air fryer.

While they were roasting, I made the Avocado Chutney Sauce and the quick pickled red cabbage. I heated vegetarian refried beans with a touch of brown sugar and red chili powder and we were ready to assemble the layers over fire roasted tostadas!

My family absolutely loved these tostadas with so many layers of flavors and textures!
