I LOVE brown rice tortilla’s baked in the oven.  Perfect amount of crispness and flavor! (Side note: Seriously NOT a fan of corn tortilla.  Absolutely disgusting in my opinion!) So, if you are gluten-free, stick with the brown rice tortillas! Unless you have weird taste buds and enjoy corn tortillas.  They don’t even smell good! :/  Plus, for this recipe you will need the brown rice ones regardless.  Also, a regular whole wheat wrap is not going to work either for this recipe because it will not be a good stiff base.

Ready?! Ready!?

Eggplant Tostada 
(per serving)

1 Brown rice tortilla (I used TJ brand)
Trader joes Eggplant Spread (or other spread of choice)
Goat cheese*
Fresh Parsley (adds a nice flavor)
Chopped sausage or chicken (I used turkey apple chardonnay sausage from TJ – so good!)
Chopped baby tomatoes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Put all  your toppings on your tortilla
Baked for 12-15 minutes
Eat. Be Happy! 🙂

*If you have trouble with dairy, goat cheese is a fantastic option.  It’s the easiest form of dairy for humans to digest since it is the dairy most like human milk. 


What other creative things can you make on a baked brown rice tortilla!? Experiment and let me know what you come up with.  Dessert or pizza perhaps?  It’s such an easy item to have fun with and SO much better that a doughball full of empty carbs and/or sugar!
