Fried green tomatoes

fried-grn-tom_9886_3I have finally made some fried green tomatoes!

They have been on my list to make and finally had the opportunity having a couple of green tomatoes in the cooler leftover from this year’s tomato harvest.

There are loads of recipes that call for a corn meal or a bread crumb batter, but I made mine with a combination of home milled flour or almond flour and nutritional yeast.






1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk (any kind, I use almond milk)
1/2 cup flour, divided
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 teaspoon Himalyan sea salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 tsp cherry bomb chili pepper powder (I made this last year, a hot sweet pepper) or other chili pepper you have
3 medium-size green tomatoes, cut into 1/3-inch slices
Vegetable, grape seed oil or coconut butter


Combine egg and milk; set aside.
Combine 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, yeast and spices in a shallow bowl or pan.
Dredge tomato slices in remaining 1/4 cup plain flour; dip in egg mixture, and dredge in yeast mixture.

Fry in med hot skillet until golden each side.

This recipe works for thick zucchini slices as well!

Optional toppings:

Pear-rhubarb chutney

plain yogurt
diced sweet red onion
chopped carrot tops or cilantro
parmesan cheese
hemp hearts
hot sauce
