Servings 4


  • 3 Green tomatoes
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground plack pepper
  • 6 tablespoons arth’s Balance soy and dairy-free margarine


  1. Slice the tomatoes in ½-1-inch thick slices. Set aside.

  2. In a large, shallow bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, salt and pepper. Take each slice of tomato and dip it in the cornmeal, coating well and shaking off the excess. I do about 4 at a time so that they don’t get soggy while they are waiting to go into the pan.

  3. Add 2 tablespoons of the margarine to a large skillet.

  4. Heat over high until the margarine sizzles and foams. Working in batches, add the coated tomatoes to the pan, careful not to overcrowd.

  5. Fry the tomatoes 3-4 minutes per side or until golden, only turning once.

  6. Serve immediately.
