You can try this Green Tomato Soup Recipe...
It serves 4-6 people, and you can substitute the meats for other favorites...Although, the ham gives it a great flavor!
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 oz thinly sliced Black Forest ham, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced scallions (from 1 bunch)
1 tablespoon chopped garlic (2 cloves)
1 Turkish or 1/2 California bay leaf
2 lb green unripe tomatoes, chopped
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Garnish: sour cream (optional)
Heat oil in a 3-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat until hot but not smoking, then cook ham, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add scallions, garlic, and bay leaf and cook, stirring occasionally, until scallions are tender and lightly browned, 6 to 8 minutes.
Add tomatoes, broth, water, salt, and pepper and simmer, partially covered, until tomatoes are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Discard bay leaf and season soup with salt and pepper.
Another good green tomato recipe is Broiled Tomatoes with Cheese-
Pepper, to taste
Finely ground bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg beaten well and diluted with 2 tablespoons water
Wash green tomatoes. Drain and dry. Cut tomatoes crosswise into halves and slice a small piece off the tops and the bottoms. Sprinkle the halves with celery salt and pepper, to taste.
Combine bread crumbs and cheese. Dip tomato halves in bread crumb mixture. Then dip in egg-water mixture and again in bread crumbs. Place breaded halves on a greased pan in a moderate oven, 375 degrees and bake until they are nearly soft. Place under broiler, turning once, until they are brown.
My final green tomato recipe pick is a game day favorite around my house...I usually use this as a topper for a mexican three bean salad
