Total Calories: 195


4 green tomatoes
about 1 cup cornmeal
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 tablespoons olive oil


1. Core the tomatoes and cut into thin slices. Discard a thin slice from the top and bottom.
2. Combine the cornmeal, salt, and basil in a small bowl. Add the tomato slices, one at a time, and coat both sides with the mixture.
3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place a few tomato slices in the skillet (as many as will fit) and fry for 4 to 5 minutes or until browned on the bottom. Turn over and cook the other side until brown. Transfer to a platter and keep warm in the oven while you cook the remaining slices. Add more oil to the skillet as needed.
4. Serve immediately.
