How to Make Healthy and Delicious Fried Green Tomatoes
Making fried green tomatoes is one of the easiest ways to incorporate an Italian food style into your diet. I love this type of tomatoes, though I’m not really an Italian food fan, per se. However, the tomatoes themselves are nothing more than a slightly modified tomato, which is why you end up with such a delicious dish.
The best green fried tomatoes on the planet are from Greenville SC. We have based this recipe from what we know of downtown, historic downtown Greenville SC restaurants.
If you are going to attempt making this dish at home, you will want to follow these steps to ensure you get the very best result. This will make for a great tasting and healthy snack, and it will also help you stick to your weight loss goals.
As you prepare the tomatoes, you will need to start by making your tomato paste to measure a one-fourth cup. Next, you will need to add in your black pepper and olive oil, if you have them lying around. Next, all you need to do is mix in your bread crumbs and mix thoroughly. Remember, for best results, don’t microwave the fried green tomatoes or the bread crumbs will become soggy, not crisp.
Once your breadcrumbs are nice and fluffy, you will want to heat up your frying pan or pot of oil on the stove over medium heat. Once the oil is warm enough, you will then add in your garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes and allow them to slowly cook for about three minutes, stirring often. At this point, your tomatoes should be almost ready to cook, and you can finish cooking your tomatoes by quickly scraping off the thin crispy layer of skin on top. Remove that piece, and your fried green tomatoes are ready to enjoy!
