Healthy Oven Baked Green Tomatoes

Healthy-Oven-Baked-Green-TomatoesI bought some green tomatoes from the grocery store and didn’t know what else to do with them but try to make a healthier version of the classic Fried Green Tomatoes.

I used the same coating and technique I used with my Vegan Oven Baked Zucchini Chips recipe and it worked perfectly.

So now, we have Healthy Oven Baked Green Tomatoes.

I wanted a tangy and tart dip to go with them so I pair it with my Raw Vegan Roma Tomato and Tahini Dressing and it was a match made in heaven!

    AMAZING!!! I have been waiting all week to make these:) thank you sooo much for sharing. I only changed a couple things due to almond allergies. I used coconut milk and brown rice flour instead. Also I added some roasted cashews for crunch and they really needed to get used. They came out fantastic, no clumping and stuck right on those delicious green babies. The only thing I could conplain about is it seemed a bit powdery. I am pretty sure its because of the brown rice flour. As for the dressing, I didn’t have a roma, so I used sungolds from the garden, a little parsley, one xlove garlic and a dash of rice vinegar. Super excited to find your blog and cant wait to try so many more of your simple, & healthy recipes. Just what my family and I have been searching for. (please excuse any type-o’s and mispelling, my phone is all I got and I think it hates me ;) )

      Hi there! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed them! I’ve never really used brown rice flour before, but it’s good to know that it worked out. I love your idea of using the roasted cashews too!

      Now your dressing/dip you came up with has me wanting to try it out…I bet the combo of garlic and tangy rice vinegar was a perfect match with the baked green tomatoes.

      Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know you liked the recipe and others on my website…I truly appreciate it ;)

    This recipe makes me giddy — I’ve been craving zuke sticks for so long!! I stumbled upon your site (thanks to HonkifyourVegan.com) and haven’t stopped drooling since. I can tell how much hard work goes into each post, and I want you to know it’s worth it! Your site and your recipes ooze with love. Thanks!

    Really easy. I was searching for a good vegan use for all the green tomatoes I have – frost came in and I had to pick them. This was it. Turned out great – I added a little cumin and red pepper flakes to the mix to kick it up a bit.

    • Karielyn says

      Hi there Bruce! I’m so jealous that you have homegrown green tomatoes! But I’m really glad you found a good use for them…and I love the idea of adding red pepper flakes as that’s one of my favorite seasonings!

      Thanks for trying out the recipe and for taking the time to let me know you enjoyed it…I really appreciate it ;)

  1. […] Healthy Oven Baked Green Tomatoes | The Healthy Family and Home Found this online last night. Haven't tried it yet. Hope it works for you. I don't have tomatoes. We had so much rain they all rotted on the vine. I made baked kale chips last night and used too much salt. The scale showed it this morning. TS, don't feel like a female eunuch. Just because you no longer have periods doesn't mean you are no longer womanly. I was overjoyed when mine stopped, I felt freed up from the monthly discomfort and mess.
