Fried Green Tomatoes is one of my favourite movies ever! I’ve probably watched it about 10 times and could watch it well over another 10 times. My favourite part of the movie is when they make their fried green tomatoes, they look so crispy and salty and have always made my mouth water!
I decided one day about 5 or 6 years ago that I would give these a try and it wasn’t shocking that they were just as good as I have always imagined. Well, lately I’ve had a hankering for them, probably due to the fact that we are growing lots of tomatoes in our garden right now! I should mention here that you want the tomatoes to be hard! That way they won’t fall apart when you fry them!
Typically I would only use almond milk for dredging the tomatoes but I recently came across a post which suggested using vegan mayo so we went this route (we thinned it out slightly with almond milk) and they turned out AMAZING! The vegan mayo gave them more flavour and it’s also a great substitute for the egg which some people use for dredging the tomatoes in!
I’ve never been to Louisianna or Mississippi but these definitely make me feel like I’m taking a quick trip there from the comfort of my own home!
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do! Make sure to share your thoughts in the comments section below!
