I grew up thinking that this was zucchini bread...ha! Once I found out it was actually green tomatoes, I was a little weirded out, but still went back for more. An excellent way to use up those green tomatoes in a very tasty bread.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9x5-inch loaf pans.
  2. Mix tomatoes, sugar, walnuts, canola oil, eggs, vanilla extract, and salt together in a large bowl until well blended. Mix flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and baking powder together in a separate bowl; stir into egg mixture until just blended. Spoon batter into prepared loaf pans.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the middle of each loaf comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let cool in the pans for about 10 minutes before transferring loaves to wire racks to cool completely.

Fantastic recipe. I made several changes to make recipe healthier. I cut sugar to 1 cup and substituted 2/3 c. Agave Nectar. Cut oil in 1/2 and added 1/2 c. applesauce. Substituted 4 egg whites for the eggs. Used 2 c. white flour and 1 c wheat. I will make again and again. It's an excellent use of all those green tomatoes I've got left in the garden.

This is an easy to prepare and highly delicious bread. My son said to me, 'wow this is really good. You can't taste the tomato.' He then took another large slice. This is a wonderful way to use your leftover green tomatoes at season's end.

Great way to use up my green tomatoes after the freeze outside. I used a food processor to grate the tomatoes and then strained them before adding as recommended by another comment. I also used vegetable oil instead of canola and 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour.
