Fried Green Tomatoes


Fried green tomatoes are a southern classic.  It’s not always easy to find green tomatoes in my local grocery store. I went to a farmer’s market and, boom, there they were. I’m sharing my recipe which includes Africa In Our Kitchen’s, Creole Seasoning.


  • 1 C. Canola oil
  • 1 large green tomato
  • 3/4 C. all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 Tbs. water
  • 1/4 C. finely ground cornmeal
  • 2 Tbs. Creole Seasoning
  • Salt & Pepper to taste



Set up a classic dredging station:

1 bowl with 1/4 C. of all-purpose flour (add salt & pepper to taste)

1 bowl with large egg, add 3 Tbs. of water and beat lightly with fork.

1 bowl with 1/4 C. cornmeal, 1/4 C. all-purpose flour and 2 Tbs. of Creole Seasoning. Stir to mix.

  1. Slice the green tomato into 1/4″ slices.
  2. Dip each slice first into flour, second into egg, and finally into the cornmeal, flour and Creole Seasoning mixture.
  3. Fry in hot Canola oil.
  4. Brown on each side and remove and drain on paper towel.
  5. Sprinkle with additional salt and Creole Seasoning to taste.

A large tomato will yield approximately 8 slices.
