I LOVED the movie FRIED GREEN TOMATOES Since I have a garden full of tomatoes this year, I thought I’d try some! I also wanted to do some eggplant and some zucchini, and make them all gluten free and casein free!
I didn’t know when I started out that it would turn out to be such a big project! I had just one small eggplant, so I bought one more, and it was quite big! I was surprised when I went out to my garden for a zucchini and found three large ones! I used two of them. I picked three medium tomatoes, like I created my recipe for. I ended up with two cookie sheets of sliced vegetables, two layers thick, waiting for me to prepare and fry them! It was a big job, but also lots of fun!
My daughter, Kayli baked chicken while I fried. We were rather fascinated, watching these vegetables fry, bubble and brown before our eyes. When it was time to eat, we definitely had eyes larger than our stomachs! We got full on just our tomatoes, eggplant and zucchini! The baked chicken had to wait!
This was a fun “experiment” to add to our summer recipes! GF Fried Green Tomatoes
