Indian Tempura Vegetables
Tempura vegetables are made from cut raw vegetables that are dipped in a gluten-free and egg-free garbanzo bean flour batter and then lightly fried in oil. They are a fun appetizer to serve to a gathering of friends and family, and also a wonderful way to use up your garden produce! Serve them with an Indian-themed meal and a spicy cilantro dipping sauce. Use my vegetable combination below or use your own. Many different veggies can be used here—try using cauliflower, lacinato kale (my favorite), baby bok choy leaves, onions, bell peppers, whole jalapeño peppers, or par-boiled potatoes and sweet potatoes!
