Crisply refreshing, bursting with flavour and very different - try this out on dinner quests. Prepare the batter well in advance so all you have to do is deep fry the vegetables.

Batter ....

1 cup of flour

2 eggs

1 tblsp olive oil

180ml warm beer

Salt and pepper
Mix together to make a smooth batter

A se1ection of thinly sliced vegetables. I used:





Florets of fresh parsley, whole sage or sorrel leaves
Heat oil for deep frying. Dip vegetables in batter, and, using a slotted spoon, place into oil. Fry in small batches - it should take about 1 - 3 minutes for the vegetables, and mere seconds for parsley or leaves. Drain on brown paper and serve hot.
