Vegan Fried Green Tomatoes

September 10, 2010

So, I’ll admit that I’ve done more battering and frying this summer than is a good idea.  But, it’s so tasty!   Fried eggplant and fried green tomatoes were the biggest hits, so I’m going to post recipes for both in the next while.  First, the tomatoes!


3-4 green tomatoes (medium to large), sliced thinly
1 sleeve of saltines, blended to a fine powder (don’t have saltines? pretzels or corn chips will work)
1 cup flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground pepper
2 cups soy milk (unsweetened, unflavored)
1/4 cup white vinegar
olive oil (NOT EVO – it smokes too fast)


Place soymilk in a shallow bowl and add vinegar.  Whisk until the milk thickens.

Place dry ingredients in larger shallow bowl and mix well.

Individually, dip slices of tomato in the milk mix (both sides) and then press into the dry mix (both sides)

Cooking can be done in a pan on the stove (coat with olive oil, fry on a medium-high temp) or in the oven (oil a bar pan or cookie sheet, bake at 425*).  Flip tomatoes when bottom is browned and cook on second side.

Pat dry if needed with paper towels before serving.

    These look awesome! I’m making some because we have a bunch of green tomatoes. We haven’t been taken very good care of our garden (imagine that!), so by the tomatoes turn red they’ve been not so happy. But, while they are green they are doing okay.

    I love the picture, too – it should be in a magazine!
