Vegan Crispy Fried Green Tomato Sandwiches












Hello & Happy Tuesday!!




If there is one thing I’m all about, it’s putting a fun modern vegan spin on Southern staples! One of my personal favorites? Fried Green Tomato Sandwiches! Believe it or not, this was one of the first concepts I explored on EDS back in 2014. Whether you love or hate tomatoes, there is something about this recipe that just brings you in regardless. 


It’s crispy, crunchy, perfect for any season, and this version is dairy and egg free!


The biggest struggle with frying anything vegan style is that sometimes you can compromise the coating without animal products. However, with a few tweaks you can get the perfect coating, just like the traditional version! 

Rather than using eggs, we opted for a flax egg and it made for the perfect substitution without modifying the texture or flavor. 





What’s also fab about this recipe? It’s quick, easy, affordable, flavorful packing spices in the coating unlike other recipes, requires no milk or eggs, the coating is crisp, you can easily make these in bulk, you can throw the tomatoes on a salad or dip in the sauce and skip the buns, the sauce is just a spicy aioli that pairs well but you could also do a remoulade sauce, and it’s just such a staple!
