A friend gave me green tomatoes from her garden. I had no idea what to do with them except fry ‘em up. They’re tomatoes, so they can’t be all bad, right?
I cut up the tomatoes and whisked a couple of brown, organic, cage-free eggs.
I dipped each tomato slice in the egg, then coated it with whole wheat bread crumbs.
I fried the slices in a pan coated with olive oil.
The slices were greasy but rather tasty. They reminded me of fried okra.
I figured two or three slices combined with a healthy dinner would be okay. Eh, maybe not. Afterwards, I looked up some fried green tomato recipes. Most of them use milk, flour, and cornmeal, but a breadcrumb recipe listed over 300 calories for each medium-sized tomato. Ouch. It was an interesting experiment, but one I won’t be replicating any time soon.
Any suggestions for green tomato recipes?
