Fried Green Tomatoes

With the fresh tomato season coming to an end, I had a surplus of green tomatoes that hadn’t quite ripened yet. I decided that it was better to use them then let them go to waste, so here we are making fried green tomatoes.

Ingredients

  • 4-6 Green Tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs
  • 1/2 Cup Corn Meal
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3/4 Cup Milk
  • Vegetable Oil
  • 1 TBSP Paprika
  • 1 TBSP Garlic Powder
  • Salt + Pepper
  • Goat Cheese

Let’s Get Cooking

Grab your large frying pan and pour in a thin layer of vegetable oil, just enough to cover the tomato slices.

Season the tomato slices with salt + pepper

Whisk together eggs + milk in a small bowl. On a small plate combine bread crumbs + corn meal+ paprika + garlic powder + salt + pepper and mix.

Take the sliced tomato and coat in bread crumbs, then egg wash, then bread crumbs again. Repeat this process with the rest of the tomatoes.

Place the breaded tomatoes into the hot oil. Cook about 3-5 min each side, or until browned. Remove from oil and place on paper towels.

Once done, stack the tomatoes with goat cheese in between layers. Serve with your fav marinara sauce or as is!

Charred Tomato Toast

It’s the simplest ingredients that go the longest ways. I mean roasted garlic is good on a flip-flop. So with these 4 simple ingredients you are about to make a meal that will have your taste buds so damn happy. I got this recipe from Brad on It’s Alive by Bon Appetit. It should be noted that I love him very much but at the same time I need Bon Appetit to pay their POC employee’s fairly. This recipe uses homemade sourdough, but you don’t have to be like me and make sourdough solely for this recipe. Feel free to use a demi-baguette or whatever kind of bread your heart desires.

Ingredients

  • Sourdough Bread/Demi-Baguette, sliced
  • Ricotta Cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Garlic Cloves
  • Salt + Pepper

Let’s Get Cooking

Bring out a large sauce pan and add in about 1-2 TBSP olive oil. Add in 6-8 cherry tomatoes [depending on how many people you are cooking for, use about 6 for one serving] and whole cloves of garlic, with the husks on, about 2-4.

Saute the tomatoes and garlic until the tomatoes begin to burst open and slightly char and the garlic has softened. Remove from heat, placing the garlic in the bowl first and tomatoes on top, top off with salt + a little olive oil.

Add in about 2 TSP more of olive oil into the same pan and place the sliced bread into the pan, allow to toast on both sides.

While the bread is toasting, place ricotta cheese in a bowl. Take the garlic from the tomatoes and remove the husks. Smash the garlic with a knife and rough chop them. Once chopped add to the ricotta. Add in olive oil + salt + pepper and mix well.

Once the bread is toasted to your preference, top off with the ricotta cheese, tomatoes, and any juices that is left off in the tomato bowl.

The Perfect Bagel & Lox

This combination is a classic. It’s hard to mess up. Now I am sure you don’t need a post from me explaining how to pair these ingredients together, but I am going to give you my version anyway!

Ingredients

  • Bagels
  • Tomato
  • Red Onion
  • Cream Cheese
  • Capers
  • Smoked Salmon

Let’s Get Cooking

Start out by cutting the tomato into slices and the red onion rings.

While you are cutting, toast up the bagel.

Spread the cream cheese onto the bagel and evenly distribute the capers on top.

Follow with, salmon + red onion + tomato to top it off.

Everyone layers the ingredients differently, but I feel this way gives you the best bite (even though I am sure it really does not matter lol)!

Enjoy this meal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner; and I mean who doesn’t feel fancy eating smoked salmon and capers?!

Made with Love,

Hannah
