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!
These look like the perfect treat with dinner tonight! Yum!
YUMMY! Will be trying this for sure.
Hi Jillian! Perfect timing for sharing this recipe. I was out in my garden and I had some green tomatoes. I just made your recipe for dinner and my husband and I love it!!! The sauce was awesome, too. I will definitely make this again with our green tomatoes. Thanks so much for this recipe and for all you do and share!
OMG AMAZING!!!! I’m so happy you loved it!!! xo
I have made these probably 5 times since the recipe came out and I have to say it’s my favorite way I have ever made them! Usually I would make them how my grandma did growing up which was very basic, some spices in some flour, toss the tomato slices in it while they are are still juicy and fry em up! Which were good but I love the extra crispy coating these have to them! I have gotten my husband to try them as well and he didn’t even care there were green tomatoes under all the flavor! Also for the love of god DONT SKIP THE SAUCE OF YOU MAKE THESE. I practically drink it
Question! How did you get the Pablo to stick to the sides? I’ve just made these tasty babies but all the Pablo came off wherever there was skin… ideas??
