Vegan Vegetable Tempura

  • 3 cups vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp. untoasted sesame oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (plus more for dusting)
  • 1 cup water (cold)
  • 8 asparagus
  • 1 small sweet potato (thinly sliced)
  • 1 large carrot (halved & thinly sliced)
  • 5 shishito peppers
  • 4 bok choy stems (halved)


  • 3/4 cup kombu dashi (dried kelp broth) (or vegetable broth)
  • 3 Tbsp. tamari sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. mirin
  • 1 tsp. light agave
  1. In pot or saucepan, preheat oil to 330 degrees F. Prepare baking sheet with paper towels and cooling rack.
  2. For tempura batter, sift 1 cup flour into bowl. Pour in water, and stir for 20 seconds. (Note: Flour lumps are OK. Don’t over mix.)
  3. Dust vegetables with remaining flour and dip into tempura batter. Let excess batter drip off vegetables, then place into oil, leaving sufficient space to fry.
  4. Fry until lightly crispy, turning regularly to ensure even cooking.
  5. Cook sweet potatoes 3 minutes, bok choy 1 minute, carrots 3 minutes, asparagus 2 minutes, kabocha squash 3 minutes, shiitake mushrooms 1 minute, eggplant 1 minute, shishito peppers 40 seconds and shiso leaves 40 seconds.
  6. For sauce, stir together broth with sauce ingredients.
  • Nutrition facts information is slightly inaccurate due to excess frying oil.
  • To make dashi broth for sauce, combine 3/4 cup water with 2.5 grams kombu (measured with kitchen scale). Leave covered 3-4 hours.
  • To create crispy outside texture without mushy inside texture, coat vegetables just lightly with batter.
  • Remove crumbs between cooking to avoid burnt pieces.
