In October, when tomatoes don't ripen as readily and frost is in the forecast, it's fun to get creative with green tomatoes. Fried green tomatoes are a fun snack for friends and family. They're also fully gluten-free! Great for entertaining.
4-5 Green tomatoes, washed and sliced into 1⁄4 inch rounds.
2 eggs, whisked well
1 cup olive oil
1 cup brown rice flour
1 cup cornmeal (could also use flour or breadcrumbs)
1 Tsp salt
1 Tsp pepper
I like to start by getting all the pieces of the puzzle in order. Ready the tomatoes by sprinkling with salt and pepper. Whisk the eggs. Mix the flours well. I usually mix flours on a plate, it is easier to fully coat tomato. Heat your oil in a large cast iron or nonstick pan.
Take a tomato round, cover both sides in egg, transfer to flour and coat well. Place in the pan. Cook on first side for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown. Turn over and cook side two. Repeat this with remaining tomatoes. I usually place 5-6 tomato rounds in the pan at once. This way I can keep up with the flipping and turning!
Next: Remove from pan and place on a paper bag or a plate lined with paper towels. This will absorb extra oils. Let cool for about 3 minutes before eating. They will be VERY hot upon removal from the pan.
For dipping sauces I've been mixing sour cream and dijon mustard. It is WICKED good. You can also dip in sriracha/mayo mixture.
