Fried 'maters

My take on this southern favorite. Makes an excellent snack or side dish!

You will need:

Olive oil
3-4 large tomatoes (green are excellent, but red are good too)
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
salt and pepper

Slice tomatoes in about 1/4 inch slices, set aside. Combine all dry ingredients on a plate and mix until evenly distributed. Add salt and pepper at will. In a large frying pan, heat olive oil on a very low temperature. Flop the tomatoes into the breading and coat both sides. By the time you finish, the olive oil should be starting to bubble a bit. Gently place the tomatoes in the oil and fry until golden-brown. Flip and repeat.

I forgot to take a pic cuz I eated them all! Pin It
