Fried Pickles

My roomies were shocked I'd never tried fried pickles, so we made some! Recipe modified from a recipe on We veganized it and used different spices. We had left over batter at the end, so we also fried peaches and potatoes, which were delicious. The pickles were the best though.


  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (soy milk with 1 tsp lemon juice, let sit 5 minutes)
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar dill pickle slices
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups fine cornmeal
  • cayenne pepper to taste
  • 1 quart oil for frying


  1. Cover a plate with parchment paper or wax paper. In a shallow dish, combine buttermilk, salt, and pepper. Place pickles in mixture and set aside.
  2. Pour the flour, cornmeal, and cayenne into a large, resealable plastic bag; shake to mix well. Add pickles a few at a time and tumble gently to coat evenly with the flour mixture. Remove and place on prepared plate.
  3. Fry pickles in several batches until golden brown and slightly crisp on the outside with a moist interior, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
