Easy Salt & Vinegar Fried Green Tomatoes

12 Aug

Fried green tomatoes. I LOVE them. I am lucky enough to have a coworker who grows tomatoes and happens to be having a problem getting them to ripen! I also love the movie. If you haven’t seen it, rent it. Immediately.

They are so easy and a yum snack.

What you need:

1 Green tomato sliced thin (my preference) or into halves (also my preference)

1/2 cup of brown rice flour

1 egg white

salt and pepper

1/2 cup of salt and vinegar chips (any variety) crushed

Italian herbs from my spice mill

Canola oil

Heat the oil in a sauce pan or frying pan. Make sure the pan or whatever you use is deep enough to have a pool of oil (how unappetizing is that?) so that the tomatoes float. If I had a deep fryer I would have used that but I don’t. Whip the egg white with a splash of cold water. I like to see a lot of bubbles in the egg white. Season with salt and pepper. Season the flour with the herbs. I used a plastic bag for the chip part but it does make it a little messier. You could easily use a bowl. Coat the tomato slices in the flour, egg and then chip crumbs. Fry until crispy brown. Don’t put too many in the oil at once or it will lower the temp of your oil. Drain on a paper towel and season with a sprinkle of salt.

Mater

Serve hot or warm with your favorite dip. I would suggest combining, ranch, Greek yogurt and a splash of hot sauce.

C’est si yum!
