    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    This is from my favorite vegetarian cookbook, "Vegetarian Planet" by Didi Emmons. This tempura is light, flavorful, and I think, perfect. The original recipe is used with asparagus ... but this makes kickin' onion rings as well!

      Five Stars for the batter and ease of doing. Taste? I followed the recipe. I used 2 tsp. wasabi. If one wants a wasabi punch, you would have to add a lot more. DH & I never tasted it when I followed your instructions. We dunked what I made in home made horseradish sauce, Wow! your batter on a veggie and the horseradish sauce pulled it all together, We have tried a lot of batter recipes, but, yours will be our favorite. Can't wait to use more veggies with your batter. Thank You, "Big Time"!
