Pretty Healthy Meals: How to Make Fried Green Tomatoes


There is nothing better than a fresh fried green tomato. I love them dipped in buttermilk ranch! It is so hard to resist from ordering them when out to eat, but if you want to save a little bit of cash here is an easy recipe that I got from Black Girls Guide to Weightloss.

2 baseball-sized green tomatoes
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups flour
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 cup corn meal
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
frying oil


Take your tomatoes, and slice them very thin – about as thin as the width of a toothpick (not the long way), or close to it.

Grab three bowls – pour your flour in one bowl and your buttermilk in the second bowl. In your third bowl, mix together your bread crumbs, corn meal, salt and paprika.

Take your skillet, turn it on 8/10. Put your frying oil in your skillet – you’ll want it to cover the entire tomato.

Grab a tomato slice, dunk it in flour and coat it completely. Then dunk it in the buttermilk, covering the tomato completely.

Lastly, drop it in the corn/crumb mixture and shake it up so that it gets coated fully. Then… drop it in the fryer. Pretty easy.
