Vegan Fried Green Tomatoes

Fried green tomatoes are a classic and even iconic dish from the American south, synonymous with summer and comfort cuisine. It is easy to see why: green tomatoes have an exquisite, unusual sweet-tartness and a firmer texture than ripe tomatoes. Smothered in cornmeal and fried up in a cast iron skillet, they become all crispy on the outside while the insides become warm and gooey and even more delicious.
This is truly a seasonal delicacy. Here, in Maryland, I can’t get my hands on green tomatoes in the market, so the only time I can eat them is when I grow them myself. We love them so much in dishes like my green tomato stew, green tomato dal and, of course, these fried green tomatoes!
Serve the fried green tomatoes as a side dish or as a snack or appetizer. It works great every way. You can also stack it in sandwiches.
