Healthier Fried Green Tomatoes

Anyone else have an abundance of green tomatoes? I gathered baskets of green tomatoes yesterday from our garden. After experimenting, I discovered this healthy version of this classic dish. A vegetarian and light option for fried green tomatoes, is perfect for using up the extra fall harvest.

This receipe serves two people. It is a great fall time appetizer and fantastic for parties as well.

Simple and quick:
– A bit of coconut oil heated in a pan
– Slice 4 tomatoes 1/2 inch thick
– Mix 2 egg whites with a tablespoon of milk or water
– 1/2 cup of flour
– 1/2 cup of whole wheat breadcrumbs plus salt and pepper to taste

Dip the tomatoes in the egg white mixture, then dip in flour, then dip in bread crumbs. Fry until evenly browned on both sides on a medium high setting. Place on paper towel to drain off excess oil.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Note, do not use red tomatoes for this recipe. They will turn to mush.

Integrate healthy eating into your yoga lifestyle by following a yoga body diet. A yoga body diet includes foods that are ideal for your dosha. Once in balance eat foods that are organic and in season. Follow me on Pinterest for recipes by the season. All of my recipes are vegetarian or vegan and include foods I love that are also excellent for each of the doshas. Most are of my own creation or modifications on recipes from cookbooks I love. For example, Oh She Glows is one of the best vegan cookbooks with many fantastic offerings that are easy and family friendly. The French Market Cookbook is wonderful for anyone who loves to French food, like myself, but is a vegetarian.

If you have other recipe for green tomatoes I would love to hear from you. There are too many in our organic garden and we are always looking for ideas on how to make the most of our harvest.
