Ripe red tomatoes are still scarce this time of year, but the farmers market is filled with green tomatoes. And that means one thing to this Southern gal — fried green tomato time! But rather than eat them as a side dish, I developed this tasty Fried Green Tomato & Tofu Sandwich:
The recipe is going in the cookbook, but it's basically a couple of cornmeal-battered green tomato slices paired with marinated, baked tofu and a maple-mustard sauce. I served mine on Ezekial bread, but this would be nice on a thick, hearty crusty bread as well.
I've been eating these for days now. Once I'm happy with a dish, I tend to re-create it for meals day after day until I run out of ingredients or get tired of it. In this case, I finally ran out of tofu. But I'm looking forward to the next sandwich when I get some more.
By the way, I spent a wonderful Father's Day with my family followed by a lovely Summer Solstice with a few raw food friends. I have pictures, but no time to post them tonight. Expect all that tomorrow.
