A healthy snack

Spring is almost here, we`ve been having a warm and sunny week, but for sure it is not something to be too confident about, there´s still a big chance of some cold cold days ahead. But even so, felling the warm sun around makes you feel healthier and lighter, so even when it was big game night, I decided to go veggie, and make vegetables in tempura. It is super easy, healthy and really delicious.
You can use just any kind of vegetable you like, with hard texture so they can be easy to grab with your hands. I use bell peppers, red and green, carrots and fresh garlic. But for sure we could have added some asparagus, small corns, mushrooms, etc.
The tempura is just flour, salt and cold water. I always start putting the vegetables one at a time in the batter and then in the hot oil, but after the first batch I pour the whole thing in..just being careful to move them in the fryer so they don´t get stuck together and fried in a bunch.
Drizzle some soy sauce over and put a big amount of this delicious tempura in a huge plate in the center, so everyone can grab a piece of this healthy and super delicious snack.
It is not to stay fit, but its the idea to eat as much vegetables as possible, and this is a good choice, I truly recommend it.
