ideas for Green Tomatoes, Not Fried

rockycat May 3, 2012 10:38 AM

As much as I love fried green tomatoes, I'm trying to cut back on the fried foods. I've tried making oven-baked "fried" green tomatoes, and wasn't too impressed. Does anyone have any ideas for cooking green tomatoes that doesn't involve copious amounts of oil? I'd prefer something warm, rather than pickled or marinated.

    My great-grandmother used to make green-tomato pie - it tastes very similar to mincemeat, if that floats your boat.

      From the Houston restaurant chain, Ninfa's Green sauce.

      Check the Homesick Texan blog for the recipe. No frying, but a bit of sour cream, but lots of green tomatoes and tomatillos.
