This recipe makes approximately 4 servings of Vegan Fried Green Tomatoes.


1. Prepare the Tomatoes:
  • Slice the green tomatoes into 1/4-inch thick rounds. Place them on a paper towel to remove excess moisture.
2. Create the Batter:
  • In a small bowl, combine the almond milk and apple cider vinegar. Let it sit for a few minutes to create a vegan buttermilk.
3. Mix the Dry Ingredients:
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper.
4. Dip and Coat:
  • Dip each tomato slice into the buttermilk mixture, allowing any excess to drip off, and then coat it with the flour-cornmeal mixture. Ensure each slice is evenly coated.
5. Heat the Oil:
  • In a large skillet or frying pan, heat about 1/4 inch of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it’s hot but not smoking.
6. Fry the Tomatoes:
  • Carefully place the coated tomato slices into the hot oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
7. Drain and Cool:
  • Place the fried green tomatoes on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil. Allow them to cool slightly.
8. Make the Remoulade Sauce:
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the vegan mayonnaise, dill pickle relish, Dijon mustard, hot sauce, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. This sauce is perfect for dipping.
9. Serve:
  • Serve the Vegan Fried Green Tomatoes hot with a side of the homemade remoulade sauce.
