This classic Southern treat uses up unripe green tomatoes and is quick to prepare.
  • 3 - 4 unripened green tomatoes
  • Sea salt
  • ½ cup brown rice flour
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cajun seasoning
  • Salt and pepper, sprinkle
  • ½ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • Oil for frying
  1. Slice tomatoes into ½" slices. Sprinkle sea salt liberally over slices and let sit 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile combine brown rice flour, garlic powder, cajun seasoning, salt and pepper in a shallow dish.
  3. Pour non-dairy milk in another shallow dish.
  4. Place cornmeal in still another shallow dish.
  5. Heat about ½" of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  6. Dredge tomato slices in the flour mixture, shaking off excess.
  7. Dip in non-dairy milk, making sure to moisten both sides.
  8. Dredge in cornmeal.
  9. Place gently in the heated oil, making sure not to crowd the pan. Fry until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Carefully turn each tomato slice and fry another 2 minutes until lightly browned on the other side.
  10. Remove from pan to a paper towel-lined plate to remove any excess oil.
  11. Serve hot.
