What You'll Need
- 3 cups vegetable oil
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup cornstarch, divided
- 1/4 cup baking powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
- 1 1/2 cups cold club soda
- 1/2 head broccoli, cut into florets
- 1/2 pound whole fresh mushrooms
- 1 zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch slices
- 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
What to Do
- In a soup pot over medium-high heat, heat oil just until hot but not smoking.
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1/2 cup cornstarch, the baking powder, garlic powder, salt, and ground red pepper. Add club soda and mix well.
- Lightly dust the vegetables with remaining cornstarch then dip a few at a time into the batter. Gently place in the hot oil and cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until golden, turning to coat evenly. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Continue until all vegetables are cooked.
- Serve immediately, or keep warm on a baking sheet in a low oven.
- Serve this with our Garlic Ginger Dipping Sauce, which is simply 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar, 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger, 2 tablespoons chopped green onion, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 2 teaspoons sugar, and 1 teaspoon sesame oil whisked together in a bowl. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Make this your very own veggie tempura by using your favorite vegetables!

Just because we have our weeknight routines, well, that doesn't mean they have to be boring. Sure, there are a lot of delicious shrimp fried rice recipes out there, but the secret that makes ours stand apart is chilling the rice before we cook it. It makes the fried rice lighter, and it won't get mushy later on. .
