I have to thank my Mom for this recipe. She made it for us the other night and it was so delicious. Living in the south I see fried green tomatoes on restaurant menus all the time, so it was a real treat to actually have some. We topped ours with green pepper jelly, red pepper jelly and Daiya mozzarella.
Fried Green Tomatoes
6 TBSP canola oil
1 1/2 cups cormeal
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
salt and pepper
5-6 green tomatoes cut in thick slices
1 cup non-dairy milk
Combine the cornmeal, flour, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Dip each tomato slice into the milk and then into the flour mixture to coat it. Place it in the hot pan and fry them about 3-4 minutes on each side until the are golden brown. You don’t want to overcook the tomatoes because they will get mushy. When they are done cooking place them on a paper towel to remove the excess oil. Serve hot.
