What can one do with a huge bowl of green tomatoes?

What if....Your kids get over-zealous and pick all your lovely green tomatoes before they ripen.


A summer thunderstorm knocks your loaded tomato plant over before the 'maters turn red.


The weather turns chilly and you still have tons of beautiful green tomatoes on the vine!

No problem. Here are a few recipes using green tomatoes that will save the day (or your harvest)! Recipes are vegetarian except for egg and dairy products.

The recipes you will find here are: Green Tomato Pasta sauce, Green tomato casserole (my favorite ) Green Mary cocktail and Fried Green Tomatoes (from Fanny Flagg).

FYI: the second scenario above was the reason I had so many! The green tomatoes shown in the image above are "Brandywine". They are quite a meaty, heavy tomato.

[All the green tomato images are mine Mickie_G - except where noted. Ask before you use pictures, please.]

Such a beautiful Green!

Green Tomato Pasta Sauce

You can freeze this gluten free tomato sauce!

If you have:

3 tablespoons good quality olive oil

3 medium cloves of garlic - chopped

3 medium (bigger than a tennis ball, smaller than a soft ball) green tomatoes, cut into eighths

1/2 cup H20

1/2 teaspoon dried basil ( 1 T fresh, chopped)

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded

salt and pepper to taste

You can:

Heat oil in a large pot (Dutch oven or big saucepan) over medium low heat.

Add garlic and cook about 1 minute.

Add tomatoes and increase heat to medium.

Sauté, stirring until garlic begins to turn brown (about 4 minutes).

Add water and dried basil (wait to add the fresh basil), cook covered 5 to 8 minutes.

Check occasionally to see when tomatoes are soft and liquid is thick (like syrup).

Transfer contents to a food processor or blender and add cheese..


Transfer to a saucepan and season to taste.

Reheat and serve over hot pasta of choice.

Use fresh, chopped basil as a garnish.

Serve with grated Parmesan.

(Sauce can be frozen)

Easily chop the garlic for the green tomato pasta sauce: - A "must have" kitchen tool.

I have a chopper very similar to this one and use it for garlic. I bought mine at Williams Sonoma for about the same price. This tool is optional, but I consider a garlic chopper a "must have" tool in my kitchen.

One tool that is consistently recommended for garlic is the peeler. You may like other styles of garlic press/mincers, but this peeler is the one you can afford to own.

Cracker Crumb topping is a little too brown, but the green tomato casserole is devine!

Green Tomato Casserole

My personal favorite recipe for using those green tomatoes!

If you have:

5 to 6 green tomatoes (thinly sliced)

Salt and pepper (to taste)

1 cup (4 oz) shredded Cheddar cheese

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter

Saltine cracker crumbs (use about 1 sleeve)

Optional toppings: Potato chips

Buttered 1 1/2 quart baking dish

You can make this recipe by:

Layering half the tomatoes, salt, pepper, half the cheese and one-third of the butter in the baking dish.

Repeat the layers and cover with cracker crumbs.

Dot with the remaining butter.

Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil.

Bake at 400 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes.

Yield: 4-6 servings

Cast Iron Skillet is the BEST for making fried green tomatoes!

Lodge Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet - 12 Inch Ergonomic Frying Pan with Assist Handle
Lodge Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet - 12 Inch Ergonomic Frying Pan with Assist Handle
A heavy cast iron skillet is the best one for frying anything. We fry our green tomatoes on the eye of the gas grill that is on our deck. Easy clean up! I really hate spattering grease.

Watch an Expert Make Fried Green Tomatoes: - Green Tomatoes: fry 'em up!

A different but similar recipe for fried green tomatoes is being used in this video. It never hurts to get more tips or recipes. You will need to go to another website ( to get the ingredients.

For Fried Green Tomatoes, I recommend:

1. Dip your finished fried green tomatoes in ranch or blue cheese dressing!

2. Use a cast iron skillet for frying the coated green tomatoes.

Living in the southern USA, I have seen green tomatoes used in all sorts of recipes. I was so surprised that those green globes are such a sweet treat. What do you or will you do with green tomatoes? I challenge you to try using this wonderful food soon.

      The Green Tomato Pasta Sauce was excellent! We added a bit more garlic the 2nd time, but it's versitle and good tasting. We even canned it after the blender step so that we have quick suppers by just opening the jar, adding the cheese & whatever else we have that evening and heating. Thanks much!

      My plants got attacked by powdery mildew this season so I was left with about 20 lbs of green tomatoes. I made green tomato mincemeat and it came out great. Perfect for mincemeat pies and tarts (original recipes for mincemeat call for beef suet hence the "meat" in the name. I've substituted vegetable oil for the suet with no significant taste difference.) Thanks for the great recipes. I'll have to try some of those next season.

      I love fried green tomatoes. I haven't had them for years. Planted a garden for the first time in years and it is almost done, but there are greens ones left. I think I'll have my wife make some.

      In past years I've made fried green tomatoes and canned up some piccalilli. I'm looking for new ideas for when I pull in all of the tomatoes before the frost. Thanks for the recipes!
