Fried Okra and Green Tomatoes

Our friend Jason taught me how to make this recipe. It's an easier way to enjoy fried green tomatoes. Simply chop a green tomato at the same time you slice the okra. Toss the veggies in a cornmeal-flour mixture, and then fry until crispy. I served this dish with Mashed Potatoes and corn on the cob as a veggie plate. Enjoy!

Fried Okra and Green Tomatoes
Fresh okra, sliced
1 or 2 green tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cornmeal
Salt and pepper
Vegetable oil

1. Combine okra and chopped green tomato. Combine flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper. Toss flour mixture with vegetables.
2. Pour oil to cover the bottom of a Dutch oven, and heat. Add in vegetable mixture, and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden and crispy. Remove to paper towels to drain. Serve immediately.
