Fried Not Green Kumatos

I’ve never had fried green tomatoes before but I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of fried tomatoes.  Normally, I roast my tomatoes in the oven, but I’ve never tried frying them.

I used a few kumatos left over from my trip to Whole Foods, and I thought I’d try breading and frying them.  It was completely last minute and half-assed, but you know what?  They turned out great!

  • kumatos (or regular tomatoes)
  • egg
  • panko
  • salt and pepper
  • oil
  1. Slice your kumatos about 1/4″ thick.
  2. Beat egg.  I happen to use egg whites because that’s what I had at the time.
  3. Dip sliced tomatoes in the egg mixture.
  4. Dip in panko on both sides.
  5. Fry in about half an inch of oil.
