"DELICIOUS! This recipe was fantastic and my family liked it better than the traditional tostada with beef or chicken on them. I'm vegan so I used vegan cheese instead and left out the sour cream. I also added some chopped onion to the mushroom and zucchini. It will be making this recipe over and over again."
