Ingredients

  • 2 medium green tomatoes sliced
  • cup almond flour
  • cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • Avocado oil if frying

Instructions

  • Combine the almond flour, parmesan cheese, and garlic powder in a shallow bowl.
  • Beat the eggs together in another shallow bowl.
  • Carefully dip the tomato slices in the eggs and then dredge in the almond flour mixture. Press the coating into the sides of the tomato to help it stick and spray with cooking spray on both sides.

Baking Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange the tomatoes in a single layer.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spray the tomatoes with cooking spray.
  • Place the baking sheet in the oven and cook for 20 to 25 minutes, flipping halfway through, until golden brown.

Air Fryer Instructions

  • Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees.
  • Arrange the tomatoes in a single layer, cooking in batches if necessary. Cook for 5 minutes per side, flip and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until golden brown.

Frying

  • Heat ½” of oil in a heavy frying pan over medium heat. Add the tomatoes and cook until golden brown. Turn and cook on the other side until brown. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
