Not everyone loves their veggies like we do, but when fried... even your picky little eaters will get their fair share of veggies.

What You'll Need

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 2 medium-size yellow squash
  • 1 medium onion
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup self-rising cornmeal
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Corn oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

What to Do

  1. Cut zucchini, yellow squash, and onion into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Separate onion slices into rings.

  2. Combine cornstarch, cornmeal, and pepper; stir in 1/2 cup water and egg until smooth.

  3. Pour oil to a depth of 1/2-inch into a heavy skillet; heat to 375 degrees.

  4. Dip vegetables into batter. Fry vegetables, in batches, 4 minutes or until golden. Drain on paper towels; sprinkle with salt.

Notes

Tempura is a fancy schmancy name for batter-dipped, deep-fried slices of vegetables. I like to serve 'em with soy sauce, zesty horseradish sauce, or sweet-and-sour dipping sauce. Try these for a change of pace - nothing plain or boring about 'em!
