Recipe - Fried Green Tomatoes

I will admit, I have never, before tonight, had fried green tomatoes.  I've seen the movie multiple times and read the book more than once, so trying these was a long time coming.

These are straight out of Paleo Comfort Foods.  We've not had much success frying almond flour before, but these turned out really well and we popped them in the oven to keep warm after they were fried.

You'll need:
4 medium green tomatoes
1.5 cups almond flour
2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp chipotle powder (I used chili powder because I was out of chipotle powder)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 large egg
1/2 coconut oil

Slice the tomatoes about 1/4 inch thick.

Combine all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well.

Beat egg in a separate bowl.

Set up your breading station.

Yours can include Finn McMissile if you choose.

Coat the tomatoes in the egg, and then place into the bowl of dry ingredients and coat both sides.

Shake off the excess and set aside.

Once the oil is hot, use a fork to place the tomatoes gently into the oil.  Work in batches, so you don't overcrowd the pan.

Turn the tomatoes over when the sides begin to brown, about 2 minutes and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes.  Remove from the pan and place onto a cooling rack that is set into a baking sheet.  Place into 325* degree oven for about 10-15 minutes.

Serve with some chipotle mayonnaise.  Mayo + chipotle peppers + garlic + coriander seed = deliciousness.
