I always loved Fried Green Tomatoes but they're usually so indulgent and sinful, i stay away. I came up with this version so I could actually enjoy the fact that there are beautiful green tomatoes at the Farmers Market right now.
Takes no time at all to prep and cook this recipe, making it the perfect snack or addition to a meal as this chilly fall weather sets in. Happy October!!
-4 large unripened Green Tomatoes
-Juice one lemon
-1 cups almond milk
-1 cup organic cornmeal
-2 tablespoons flax meal
-1 tablespoon arrowroot
-1 tablespoon paprika
-2 teaspoons garlic powder
-1 tbsp salt
-1 teaspoon black pepper
Makes 4-5 servings (3-4 pieces per person)
-preheat oven to 400
-Cut the green tomatoes into 1/2 inch thick pieces
-Dredge in dry mixture lightly / then wet / then back to dry to coat tomato pieces. Make sure you shake the excess crumbs off
-place in baking pan and drizzle liberally with avocado or grape seed oil (coconut oil works too)
-cook tomatoes for 12-15 min or until golden brown
-flip tomatoes and let cook for 5 additional minutes
-after removing from oven, salt again so the seasoning stays on the tomatoes.
Enjoy on your favorite burger / bunless burger plate/ or on top of a hearty salad! YUM!
