Recipe: Vegetable Tempura

I got the idea for this recipe from Chef Hilary at The Hil. She had tempura fried bok choi on her vegetable plate and it was delicious. I looked up a tempura batter recipe and realized it was quite easy. I served the vegetables over brown rice with miso soup. Delicious.

Tempura Batter

from the Joy of Cooking

Whisk together in a medium bowl until blended:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

In a separate medium bowl, whisk together until blended:

1 egg

1 cup cold water

Combine them and mix with a fork just until blended. The batter will be lumpy. Use immediately. Fry in 3 inches vegetable oil.
