Description[edit | edit source]

These Zuchini Fritters are like Tempura but healthier!

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 leaves fresh basil, minced
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups oil for frying
  • 12 pumpkin or zucchini blossoms

Directions[edit | edit source]

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, basil and Parmesan cheese. Mix in water and eggs until smooth.
  2. Heat 1/2 inch of oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, dip blossoms in the batter to coat, and gently place a few at a time into the hot oil. Fry on each side until crisp and golden. Drain on paper towels.
