    B”H Thanks Jamie, as always another winner!
    I watched Jacque Pepin’s Channukah celebration on YouTube yesterday, and he chopped up the vegetables, not too fine, mixed them together , and then put them in the tempura batter , and fried them like latkes…both ways sound yummy. Good Shabbos :-)

  3. Tempura..love it. Perfect when I want to have something fried (which is rare, but even so!)

  4. Definitely a great way to get me to eat vegetables! Can’t wait to try this out!

    I love tempura veggies. We just had them last night at a restaurant and my husband was saying that I really need to make it at home. Also love that you shared the tasty dipping sauce! This is a perfect Saturday night treat!
