“Fried” Green Tomatoes.

April 25, 2012 by Carolina

A couple of months ago while in Savannah I had the best fried green tomatoes…crispy, delicious fried green tomatoes. I was craving said fried green tomatoes but I’m trying to stay away from fried foods so I decided to create my own version of these “fried” delicious treats. Katie is leaving Orlando this morning so last night we got together to share a meal before she left, & these “fried” green tomatoes made an appearance. They were crunchy, healthy & satisfying, can’t go wrong with that!

Ingredients (Makes 4 Servings)

2 Green Tomatoes, sliced in thick rounds (4 out of each tomato)

1 cup dried polenta

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

Pinch of salt & pepper

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 eggs, scrambled

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a plate, combine the polenta, paprika, thyme, salt & pepper. Place every ingredient in a separate dish, creating an assembly line in this order: green tomato, flour, egg whites, polenta mixture.

Grab a slice of green tomato & coat with flour on both sides, dip into the egg whites, then coat with polenta mixture. Repeat this process until all tomato slices are coated. Place on a cookie sheet & bake for 15 minutes, flip the tomatoes & drizzle with a little olive oil to bake for another 5 minutes (total cooking time is 20 minutes).

Serve with your favorite sauce or on top of a salad like I did, drizzled with a vinaigrette. Buen provecho!
