I thought I would "primalize" one of my favorite comfort foods. Fried green tomatos! ummm.... at least that is what I wanted to do. It turned out to be a big flop. I did get some good ideas and I will be trying it again. for now I'll just share the disaster with you.
So the way grandma does it is with a corn bead batter... that is not going to work now that I have gone primal. so I thought to dip them in egg and ground nuts with a little salt and pepper. I used coconut oil to fry them up.
The nuts cooked a bit faster than I thought I would. So I had to remove the ones in the pan about half way through cooking because I was afraid that every thing would taste "smoky".
I used the nuts I took out to make a quick coconut milk gravy.
I think it was ok. I could live on it if I had to, but it was far from the comfort food I remember. I am thinking the next time I try it I'll do a take on a BLT and use bacon. Maybe make it into a deconstructed kind of salad?
