    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    My daughter has been asking me to make tempura so I've been on the lookout for recipes. This recipe was found in the LCBO's Food & Drink Spring 2009 magazine. For the best results, make sure you don't over mix the batter. The beer and rice flour produce a delicate, crispy batter. ***You can replace some of the veggies with fish, peeled shrimp or calamari rings if desired.*** I've listed those ingredients as optional. You can also experiment with other veggies.

    1. 1

    3. 3
      Peel sweet potato and cut crosswise into 1/4 inch slices.

    5. 5
      In batches of 3 or 4 pieces, dredge veggies in batter to coat completely, letting excess drip off.

      With a slotted spoon, remove cooked vegetables from pan and transfer to paper towel lined, rimmed baking sheet to drain off excess oil.

      We made this as part of our asian dinner fest last night. We ran into 2 problems. The batter didn't stick well to the ingredients we used, my DH added more flour but it didn't help. The flavor of beer was too strong. I didn't use light beer because we didn't have any. I am not giving any stars because it isn't fair to you if I didn't use the beer you listed in recipe. I appreciate having this recipe to try last night. It is definitely out of the norm for us and added a good dimension to our dinner. Made for ZWT6 for the Voracious Vagabonds.
