How to cook "with visual instructions" healthy, traditional and delicious Japanese dishes!!

Vegetable Mix Tempura (Vegan/Vegetarian)

2 Comments

“Vegetable Mix Tempura”, which is called “Kakiage” in Japanese, is a traditional Japanese recipe. We enjoy this tempura on steamed rice, on Japanese Soba noodle, on Japanese Udon noodle, or just the tempura itself.

In Japan, people always try to make the tempura with a great crunchy texture. With this recipe, you can cook crunchy tempura easily. The seasoning is only salt, the vegetables are tender and the batter is crunchy so you can really enjoy more vegetables. Also, the recipe is very simple. I just use 1 skillet, 1 bowl, a cutting board and a knife. So If you have kids who don’t like vegetables very much, you might want to try to cook this recipe!

Enjoy!!


{Ingredients (servings 4)}

    • Thank you! This is definitely yummy! Yes! It is fried but still healthy because some of the nutrition from the vegetables is not broken down even under high heat because of the way this recipe works.
