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.
FRIED GREEN TOMATOES AT THE PLANT HEALTH MAN CAFEPrint Recipe
- 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
Place the plant based milk and cheese style powder into a bowl and mix well.
Place half of the flour in a second bowl and the other half in a third bowl.
Place the Old Bay Seasoning in bowl number two and mix well with the flour.
Add the Cajun Seasoning Mix into the third bowl and mix well with the flour.
Place a non stick pan on the stove on medium to high heat.
Cut the tomato into four equal slices.
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.
Repeat with the third and fourth piece except place them into the third bowl after drowning.
Place tomato pieces into the hot pan and cook until golden brown on either side.
While they're cooking make up a dipping sauce of your choosing. On this occasion I combined vanilla coconut yogurt with some defrosted blueberries.
There is no need to add salt as the seasoning mixes already have plenty.
