Process

Preheat the oven to 200C, 400F, Gas 6. Toss the courgettes, broccoli and asparagus in olive oil. Season well and roast in the oven for 8-10 minutes.

Make the bean hash, place all the ingredients except the mint in a food processor and whiz until smooth. Season to taste and stir in chopped mint.

Place the beetroots in a glass jar or bowl with the remaining ingredients and season well.

Slice the bread into 8 slices and dry fry in a griddle pan until toasted.

Place the tostadas on a serving board and spread each one thickly with the bean hash.

Remove the roasted vegetables and place in a bowl and toss in the peas. Arrange the roasted vegetables on top of each tostada. Crumble over each a little of the soft herb cheese and scatter over the cress and herbs.

Serve with the balsamic beets on the side.
