FRIED GREEN TOMATOES AT THE PLANT HEALTH MAN CAFE

After picking the last of my tomatoes a few days ago I decided to make something I had eaten in the USA several times, fried green tomatoes.

The most memorable ones where at The Hominy Grill in Charleston, SOUTH CAROLINA.

So I made two versions to try:
– Cajun flavoured; and
– Traditional with Old Bay Seasoning.

The last of the tomato crop my backyard for the season.

Print Recipe
Serves: 4 pieces Cooking Time: 10M

Ingredients

  • 1 large green tomato
  • 1 cup of unprocessed wholemeal flour
  • 2 tablespoons of Old Bay Seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons of Cajun Spice Mix
  • 2 tablespoons of cheese style sauce powder
  • 1/2 cup of plant based milk (I used soy on this occasion)
  • Dipping sauce
  • 1/2 cup of vanilla coconut yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh or defrosted blueberries

Instructions

1

Place the plant based milk and cheese style powder into a bowl and mix well.

2

Place half of the flour in a second bowl and the other half in a third bowl.

3

Place the Old Bay Seasoning in bowl number two and mix well with the flour.

4

Add the Cajun Seasoning Mix into the third bowl and mix well with the flour.

5

Place a non stick pan on the stove on medium to high heat.

6

Cut the tomato into four equal slices.

7

Dip the first two slices into the cheesy milk mix and drown. Remove then place into bowl number two to coat both sides well with the seasoned flour mix.

8

Repeat with the third and fourth piece except place them into the third bowl after drowning.

9

Place tomato pieces into the hot pan and cook until golden brown on either side.

10

While they're cooking make up a dipping sauce of your choosing. On this occasion I combined vanilla coconut yogurt with some defrosted blueberries.

Notes

There is no need to add salt as the seasoning mixes already have plenty.
