Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    4 Medium Green Tomatoes
    1/4 cp Coconut Flour
    1/2 tsp Salt

    2 large Eggs
    1/2 cp Almond Flour
    1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated

Tips

Approximate nutrition information (since the tomatoes are just dredged in the "breading", you will not be using all of it and the SparkRecipes count is a bit off):

Per serving (5 slices tomatoes): 223 calories, 16g fat, 5.5g net carbs, 10g protein

Note: This is just for the tomatoes, not the salad ingredients since each person would tailor the salad differently, using different lettuce, different guacamole, etc.


Directions

Wash and slice the tomatoes into inch thick slices. Mix the coconut flour, salt and pepper together in a medium bowl. Toss the tomato slices in the coconut flour until fully coated. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat the 2 eggs. In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour and parmesan cheese. Heat the oil in a medium nonstick saute pan. Dip the coconut flour coated tomatoes into the egg, then into the almond flour/parmesan mixture - be sure they are completely coated on both sides. Fry in batches in the olive oil until golden brown on both sides. Serve hot with roasted red pepper aioli, lettuce, bacon, guacamole, ripe tomatoes, and anything else you want to add!
