hemp seed crusted “fried” green tomato salad with mozzarella

I'm so excited to share this recipe I created as part of a collaboration with Manitoba Harvest hemp seeds! It's reminiscent of a caprese salad, and the hemp seed crusted tomatoes add a nutty and rich taste.

Hemp seeds are soft, small seeds that are a great source of plant-based protein and omega-3 fats. They're a delicious addition to soups, smoothies, salads, and bowls! Give the recipe below a try. Hope you love it xo


1/4 cup organic shelled hemp hearts (I used Manitoba Harvest)

1/4 cup AP flour

1 egg

4 medium green tomatoes

1 tbsp olive oil

5-8 fresh basil leaves

4 oz fresh mozzarella

1 tsp balsamic glaze

recipe (makes 2 servings)

  1. place hemp seeds, AP flour, and whisked egg in 3 separate mixing bowls

  2. cut tomato into 1/4" thick slices (it should amount to 5-6 slices without end pieces)

  3. dip each tomato slice first into egg wash, then into AP flour, back into egg wash, and lastly in hemp seeds

  4. heat a frying pan over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp olive oil

  5. add each tomato piece and cook on each side for 3-5 minutes until hemp seeds turn crispy and browned

  6. plate by alternating hemp seed crusted tomato and mozzarella slices

  7. add a drizzle of balsamic glaze and basil leaves, and enjoy!
