Vegetable Tempura

26 July 2003

In my efforts to cook and eat healthier meals, I’ve been trying some yummy recipes with no meat – on the menu last night was vegetarian tempura.

I don’t often cook deep fried meals. Mainly because of the amount of oil it requires. My mother used to have this old oil pot dedicated to deep frying. She used it over and over again. It was encrusted with old batter and had unidentifiable floaty bits. It was so gross.

Anyway, I was to reluctant use a lot of oil — so they turned out a little weird. Tasty. But weird. My husband said they tasted like vegetable doughnuts. Oh well. Next time I shall use more oil.
