We had two tomato plants this summer, but all they seemed to produce were green tomatoes. We could never get the ripe ones before the birds.  Cheesy


As we were removing the plants for compost we found bunches of beautiful green tomatoes. So I had to use them, and these are the 2 recipes:

Green Tomato Bread (Tastes like zucchini bread)
2 cups finely diced green tomatoes
1 1/2 cups agave nectar
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1 cup canola oil
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups white wheat flour ( I recommend King Arthur)
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray two loaf pans. Mix tomatoes, agave, walnuts, canola oil, eggs, vanilla extract, and salt together in a large bowl until well blended. Mix flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and baking powder together in a separate bowl; stir into egg mixture until just blended. Spoon batter into prepared loaf pans. This is a thick batter. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the middle of each loaf comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let cool in the pans for about 10 minutes before transferring loaves to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes 2 beautiful yummy loafs!


Mexina Salsa Verde
3 green tomatoes
2 fresh jalapeno chilies
1 large red tomato
1 medium onion, chopped ( think next time I will use a purple onion)
1/4 cup lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
2 cloves garlic
2 tsp. cumin
cayenne pepper (optional and to taste)
Directions:
Place tomatoes and jalapenos in a pot, and cover with water. Bring to a boil, and cook until the tomatoes and jalapenos turn light green, about 15 minutes. Drain well, and place in a food processor fitted with S blade with the onion, lime juice, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic, cayenne and cilantro. Pulse to desired consistency and chill.


Both were hits with family and company. Let me know if you try them.
Enjoy! Smiley

ooo, ooo, ooo. I have to try the bread! Darn, the summer is gone. I need a greenhouse!!! Saved the recipe. Have to try it next year, or see if my local produce stand still has some greens. I love them sliced, breaded and fried. I never thought of putting them "into" bread. Great idea. Thanks!  ~T

The green tomato bread is new to me. It looks quite good. What did it taste like?
The salsa looks delicious.
Fried green tomatoes and green tomato jam are good too. You make me think I could pick tomatoes before they are ripe. Why did I never think of it, especially since the birds here are as hungry as yours?

Thank you all! Smiley

The tomato bread tastes like zucchini bread, only a touch lighter in flavor. I recommend it. Smiley
