Absolutely fantastic!! Light and tasty batter. I definitely had to add flour and I also added some Italian breadcrumbs to thicken it up. I used Sam Adam's Light Lager beer. Deep fried small florets of broccoli and cauliflower plus some button mushrooms. Dipping sauce also great. Received rave reviews from my guests.


This is a great recipe! It was very easy and they taasted great. The dipping sauce is a must. This is also a great batter. I think that it would be good on other vegetables that you might want to serve this way, if green beans are not you favorite.


This was sooo good, that when we were done eating, my husband asked me to cook more! Easy recipe, and I think the batter would be good on just about anything. The sauce is great too.
