Tempura is that perfect combination of healthy (veggies!) and indulgent (fried! crispy!) and, as it turns out, surprisingly easy to make. You can buy bags of pre-made tempura mix but, given how simple the list of ingredients is, it’s probably something you can just make on your own, too, which we’d like to do next time. This is what our first batch of tempura looked like, in 2011. (Not pictured: Rice, obviously.) What do you think is the best thing to dip it in? We use soy sauce or my beloved Soyaki from Trader Joe’s, but that isn’t quite right.
