  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan over medium-high heat. Dip each piece of cauliflower into the batter and cook in batches in the hot oil until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Place on paper towels to absorb excess oil. Repeat with broccoli, red bell pepper, and baby carrots.

Cauliflower was 5 a head and there is only two of us so I left it out and just did the other veggies. This worked good for me as written but using club soda would have been even better. There is no flavor in the batter so you really either need to add some or make sure you have a dipping sauce. Read More

Our sons if you can really call them that well our twin boys is more like it these days. They came home after their first semester of college and had some news. They turned vegan. Said these big farms they are destroying the earth. That s not how we raised these boys but we try to keep an open mind. They picked this recipe out for us to cook together. It was great getting back into the kitchen again. Cody flicking warm oil on Brody Brody howling like a coyote when the veggies hit the fryer. The boys really seemed to enjoy these when all was said and done but I just couldn t see why we couldn t spoon a healthy helping of butter onto them!! Read More
