Beer batter fried cauliflower, broccoli, mushrooms, peppers, atichoke hearts, or other vegetables like okra. Yummy!


    * 1 1/2 cups beer, open one too many and put it in the fridge until the next day

    * 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour, sift before measuring
    * 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
    * 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder (optional because the Dip has loads of garlic innit)
    * 1 tablespoon olive oil
    * 2 egg yolks, beaten
    * 2 egg whites, beaten to stiff peaks
    * vegetables: cauliflower and broccoli florets, cooked artichoke hearts, green pepper strips, mushrooms, okra, etc.


In a mixing bowl, combine flour, Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, and garlic powder. Stir in olive oil, egg yolks, and flat beer; beat until mixture is smooth. Fold in the beaten egg whites. Dip vegetables in the batter. Fry in deep hot fat, about 375°, a few at a time, for about 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately. Makes about 3 cups of batter for the veggies.
