Green Tomato Cooking Tips

When choosing your tomatoes for this green tomato recipe, you’ll want ones that are firmer to the touch. This ensures that they are preserved during dredging and frying.

When you cook, you don’t want the slices to be 1/4 inch thick. Thinner mowers tend to soak.

Be sure to always place roasted tomatoes in a single layer on paper towels to drain excess fat. This step helps keep them fresh longer.

Try not to flip the tomatoes once while frying. You should store all that delicious bread in the tomatoes, not in the bottom of the pan.

What are the benefits of green tomatoes

1) Heart health

For most people, tomatoes are the main dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene. Along with beta-carotene (which gives vegetables their red-orange hue), lycopene may reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.

In addition, tomatoes protect blood vessels.

2) Skin protection

While research is still ongoing, some studies have shown that tomatoes and tomato-based foods that are high in lycopene can protect us from sunburn. Their high vitamin content is believed to promote skin health.

3) Prevention of cancer

There have been many observational links between tomato consumption and reduced risk of certain cancers. It is believed that lycopene is responsible for this enhanced protection.

In addition, there have been studies that have shown that high levels of carotenoids may also protect against cancer.
