      Tostadas with Turmeric Guacamole
      4 6-inch whole grain corn tortillas
      1.5 tbs olive oil
      2 cups canned black beans, rinsed and drained
      1/2 cup salsa
      1/2 avocados, peeled and diced
      1 tbs finely chopped red onion
      1 clove garlic
      1 tsp fresh lemon juice
      1/4 tsp powdered turmeric
      1/4 tsp ground cumin
      1/8 tsp salt
      pinch of ground black pepper
      4 cups arugula
      1/2 cup chopped tomato
      1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
      Preheat the oven to 350°.
      Brush 2 tsp of olive oil over both sides of each tortilla, place on a baking sheet, and bake until crispy, about 10 min.
      In a blender, pulse beans and salsa until about half the beans are pureed and half remain chunky.

      Add water, 1 tbs at a time, if needed to thin the mixture. If prefer the beans warm instead of room temperature, heat in a microwave safe dish for 1 min, or until heated through.
      In a medium bowl, mash the avocado, red onion, garlic, lemon juice, turmeric, cumin, salt, and pepper together until smooth.
      Heat 2 tbs of water in a large pan and add the 4 cups of arugula, mixing until only slightly wilted, then remove from the water.
      Assemble the tostadas. Spread the bean and salsa mixture on the baked tortillas and top with the wilted arugula, chopped tomato, guacamole, and sprinkle of red pepper flake.
