My wife and I make a lo-calorie/lo-fat twist on fried green tomatoes: broil them! Thin-slice the tomatoes, spray both sides of the tomatoes liberally with your choice of cooking spray, (we use our own olive oil pump sprayer) dredge through corn meal with a little parmesan cheese mixed in and place on a cookie sheet which goes into the oven right under the broiler. When the tomatoes begin to bubble and scorch slightly, flip them over and repeat. Remove and add a little S & P. This works great and is less messy or oily.

Fried is excellent! A restaurant near us used to serve them in a stack alternating with goat cheese rounds and drizzled with a balsamic reduction. Oh, so good!

Seeing as how tomato season sort of skipped us, I am looking at a lot of green tomatoes. This sounds excellent, as does the soup. And, I "fry" eggplant in the oven, so will take the broiled tomato technique, might make a reduction using one of my homemade vinegars...the raspberry is to die for...More recipes using green tomatoes?

Fried Green tomatoes are on of the food groups in Georgia. I also bake them occassionaly, but they are not the same. Cut them up, into a zip lock bag with cornmeal and into a cast iron skillet with Veggie oil. Drain and servie with a spicy sauce. The one I make is mayo, creole mustard, garlic powder, paprika, worcestershire and the special ingredient is wasabi paste.
