Let’s celebrate Hispanic Heritage, with a typical Mexican recipe, Molletes light, prepared with milk, with the recipe of Sui-Nui Escobar, nutritionist of Milk Mustache.
This is is a sponsored blog post.
It’s a simple recipe, but we’ll use the oven to toast the bread and gratin the cheese, you can skip this step, roasting the bolillos in the comal and gratin in the microwave.
My family love them with a glass of milk or chocolate .Tthis is a low-calorie version, but just as delicious as the original, you can serve them either as breakfast, snack or snack.
Molletes light recipe
(By Sui-Nui Escobar)
Makes 4 servings (2 molletes each)
1 cup cooked beans
1/2 cup low-fat milk (1%)
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 teaspoon flour
1 tablespoon oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
8 oz baguette bread (or French bread, bolillo, telera)
1/2 cup low-fat mozzarella cheese
- You can add chopped tomato and onion, to garnish
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Meanwhile, mix the beans with the milk in a food processor or crush them manually until well integrated.
Add the anti-stick oil to a frying pan and simmer. Add the garlic until lightly toasted.
Add the flour and remove from the heat. Continue stirring for about 30 seconds to brown the flour lightly.
Return the pan to the heat and add the bean mixture and oregano.
Heat for about 5 minutes by stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cut the bread into 8 pieces if it is baguette or in half if it is French bread, bolillo or telera.
Add a layer of beans to each bread. Add the cheese.
Bake until the cheese melts, we take it out of the oven.
We serve with a hot chocolate, a latte or a glass of cold milk.
