Vegetable Tempura

Vegetable Tempura - Recipe on Shutterbean.com!

I have two problems to solve and low and behold, Vegetable Tempura comes to the rescue.

Problem 1:

My child doesn’t like a variety of vegetables.

Problem 2:

I have random vegetables in my fridge I need to get rid of.

Vegetable Tempura

I’ve never made my own tempura before. Not sure why….but we DO love ordering it when we’re out. It’s a way to get Cooper to eat things he wouldn’t have eaten because he can see the color and know THIS IS A SWEET POTATO and he has a rule about eating sweet potatoes.

Tempura batter is the perfect camouflage.

It’s also not as intimidating and I thought it was. Silly me.

Vegetable Tempura

It’s also a fabulous way to get rid of whatever random vegetables you have in the fridge after a week (or two!) of meal chaos. Random definitely vegetables have a place in Vegetable Tempura.  They’re BUILT for this situation completely!

This batter is fluffy and light. It’s super simple to pull together. Next round, we’re adding some shrimp….and maybe a banana because we’re gonna need dessert.  What would happen if I dropped a cookie in the batter….. there goes the neighborhood.

We had wings.

I tried to make them in my new Instant Pot this time.

I normally make them like this.

The instant pot cooked them fast but they made them so incredibly tender the meat mostly fell off the bone. I gotta futz with the settings and figure it out. Maybe they’ll just be something I make in the oven (or fry!)

This is why I had one of the walls in our bedroom painted black.

The afternoon light is magical.
