  • 2
    Large Green Tomatoes
    (or 4 small) slice to even, medium thickness, about 1/2in
  • 1/2
    cup Plain Plant Milk
    I make my own Oat Milk - easy bonus recipe below!
  • 1
    tsp Lemon Juice or Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2
    cup Almond flour
  • 1/4
    cup Nutritional yeast
  • 1
    tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2
    tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2
    tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2
    tsp Sea Salt
  • Dash of Cayenne Pepper


Preheat oven to 425F & line baking sheet with parchment paper (You can also use the air fryer at 395F)
Add all dry ingredients to a bowl for your bread crumbs, whisk together then separate mixture evenly into two bowls
Prepare your assembly line: sliced tomatoes, plant milk mixture, one bowl of bread crumbs, prepared baking sheet or oiled air fryer basket
Dip a tomato slice into the almond milk, covering both sides, then dip each side into the Bread Crumbs covering each side, then transfer to baking sheet
Bake for about 15 minutes (less for air frying, check at 10 min), the ropes should be gold. Flip and bake another 5 min or longer until the other side is gold
Assemble your Sammy: slice of bread, sauce, tomato slices, lettuce/other veggies & Bread. DONE! Enjoy.
Tips of the Week: Any leftover plant milk/bread crumbs can be mixed together for a batter that is excellent for cauliflower bites! Bake at same temps til crispy
Make your own easy, 5 min, cost efficient and chemical/additive free Oat Milk: Use a ratio of 1 C Rolled Oats: 4 C cold Filtered Water.
Add your Oats & Water to a high speed or reg blender with a pinch of sea salt. Blend on high for about 30-45 seconds, 1 min. for a reg blender.
Strain immediately through a nut milk bag. Store in jar or sealed container 3-5 days in fridge.
To avoid mushy oats / slimy oat milk, water must be cold & you need to work fast (no soaking), and do not use quick-cook or steel cut oats.
Separation is normal given there are no additives, give your jar a good shake to mix before using.
