Vegan GF Fried Green Tomatoes


I had to pull all my tomato plants because… It’s cold here. So, I had a big ol’ box of green tomatoes. Pulled out my cast iron skillet, and fried green tomato time it was.


So good.


  • 3 – 4 unripened, medium sized green tomatoes
  • Sea salt
  • ½ cup brown rice flour
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • Oil for frying


Clean up some lovely green tomatoes. Slice them 1/4 inch thick. Lay the slices out and sprinkle with salt. Let the tomatoes sweat for 5 minutes, and dab off excess water.


Pour the milk in a bowl, the brown rice flour in another bowl. Pour the remaining ingredients in another bowl and whisk cornmeal and spices together.

Dip each side of the tomato slices first in the brown rice flour, then the milk, then the cornmeal spice mixture.


Coat a cast iron skillet in oil and turn heat to medium. Place tomato slices in skillet and fry 3-4 minutes on each side until golden and crispy. Serve and enjoy! I like mine with a little hot sauce!
