This breakfast tostada was something new for me; it was a meal that I really enjoyed (and I served it with a perfectly ripe banana on the side!). This dish is complete with a good amount of protein (hummus, cheese, egg, and even spinach!), and is a wonderful way to get an extra serving of greens in your diet in the morning (there’s a full 3 cups of spinach wilted down!). Serve it with a piece of fruit for a well-balanced meal that will stick with you for at least four to five hours.


  • 1 small (6 inch) soft flour tortilla (I used a Mission Fajita Super Soft Flour Tortilla)
  • 0.25 tsp olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp hummus or refried bean (I used warm caramelized onion + chickpea spread)
  • 3 cup lightly packed baby spinach
  • 1 tsp water
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1 Ounce sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 large egg, cooked any way you want


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Brush the oil on one side of the tortilla and place the tortilla (oiled side down) onto a baking sheet; spread the hummus in an even layer on top.
  3. Add the spinach to a medium-sized skillet over medium heat with the water, salt, and pepper. Cook until the water evaporates and the spinach wilts, about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Spread the spinach on top of the hummus, and then sprinkle on the cheese.
  4. Bake until the cheese is melted and the tostada is warm throughout, about 8 minutes.
  5. When the tostada is almost finished cooking, cook the egg however you want (I did sunny-side up!).
  6. Place the egg on top of the tostada and serve immediately.
