Vegetarian cauliflower tempura

Vegetarian cauliflower tempura

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SAUCE

  • TO SERVE

Tempura is a batter that was adapted by Japanese from Portuguese in 16th century. Today it’s a typical Japanese way of cooking – vegetables, prawns, meat and even fruit pieces fried in a thin batter coat. Here is a vegetarian version of a popular Asian dish. This sesame cauliflower remains a bit crunchy inside and is covered with a most delicate batter that absorbs the sweet sauce without soaking. Serve this dish with rice or noodles, fresh herbs or vegetables, decorated with sesame seeds and bright spring onions.

Recently she began to blog in Instagram, where she shows everything that brings pleasure: cooks, shares recipes, takes pictures. Every day for her is full of new discoveries: the first chocolate cake from zucchini, the first shooting under artificial lighting and even the first photophone, which suddenly fell on the cake. But, despite of small failures, Lida receives from all of its huge emotional feedback! She likes to learn, to invent beautiful stories in the frame and tell them to subscribers. Lida wants her hobby to turn into a profession. The family supports the author very much, especially because they get all the dishes that she cooks, and children are the main critics, most often enthusiastic.
