If you like fried green tomatoes than you will definitely love this recipe. Be sure to always buy your tomatoes organically grown. This is because they have a thick skin and are often highly sprayed with pesticides and may also be genetically modified in the conventional variety.
This is low-carb as the flours that are used are arrowroot and almond meal. The more turmeric you can get into your body, the better your health will be! This recipe is a bit light on turmeric and if you can handle more and still enjoy the flavor than I would highly recommend it. Black pepper and coconut oil help to improve the absorption of the curcuminoid anti-oxidants in the turmeric.
